Viruses don’t travel, people do.
Please be advised that for at least the next month the City of Kimberley is discouraging all non-essential visitor traffic as we cope with the consequences of COVID-19.
At a Special Meeting of Council held Monday, March 30, 2020, Kimberley City Council adopted the Utility Rates Penalty Deferral Bylaw that will see the penalty date for 2nd quarter utility payments deferred by two months from June 10th to August 10th, 2020.
Remember to take care of yourself and each other during this time - be a good neighbour, practise good hygiene and social distancing, and support those most vulnerable including our seniors.
We are making a difference!!
The media update from our Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry reinforced that the hygiene and physical distancing measures we are taking are indeed making a difference. As good as this is, we are not close to being on the other side yet. Rather than risk complacency, we need to double down.
The City of Kimberley is exploring ways to provide financial support for residents and businesses during the COVID – 19 pandemic. Staff and Council aim to provide tax and utility relief for residents and businesses facing financial challenges. Here is a brief synopsis of those (including Provincial) initiatives. Details below.
