Municipal Offices Closed Until At Least April 20, 2020

All five municipal units have made the decision to close their municipal offices until at least April 20th, 2020 in light of the extension of the State of Emergency issued by the Province due to COVID-19.

Although the offices remain closed all municipal units continue to provide the services it can during COVID-19. Residents are encouraged to call their municipal office if you they any questions or visit the municipal websites and social media channels for current updates. The following measures remain in place as they continue to work under a provincial State of Emergency:

  • All non-essential services, such as by-law enforcement, is reduced, in favor of
    more critical municipal services.
  • All recreation related activities are suspended until further notice.
  • All municipal related travel is suspended until further notice.
  • Interest charges are being waived until further notice.

The municipal units want to remind residents that this is a time in which we need to come together and think about each other. Helping our neighbors and those most vulnerable, along with our personal safety is important. There is no doubt that these challenging times can cause anxiety and stress but there is no need to panic. The residents of Shelburne County are resilient, considerate and supportive which will all help make the best of this situation. Please stay home when you can, wash your hands often and practice physical distancing of 2 metres or 6 feet. Stay Safe!

Finally, being prepared and staying informed is vital and we encourage everyone to continually visit for up to date information.
