Lethbridge mayor urges patience as city responds to COVID-19 pandemic

The City of Lethbridge entered Day 2 two of a state of local emergency Thursday in light of the novel coronavirus and the mayor had a simple message for residents.

“We are navigating a much different world each day,” Chris Spearman said.

“We ask that you be patient while we work out the answers for our community.”

The city is trying to determine answers to questions concerning things like utility bills and property taxes.

Spearman said Thursday the city is now examining the logistics and financial implications of implementing a 90-day deferral period for all city utility bills.

As for property taxes, the mayor said options are being weighed, but any decision on that front would need approval by city council.
