The Town of Shelburne is doubling and tripling its efforts to help small business in town through this crisis.
To ease the financial burden that many residents and businesses are experiencing, Mayor Wade Mills and Council put forth Community Relief Plan.
The plan addresses four key areas – taxes, water & sewer bills, licensing, and parking.
Mills says they have established a working group that is determining critical needs among our local businesses and will be facilitating any relief efforts.
Shelburne Council members will be contacting businesses to gather information and feedback.
The Mayor himself is reaching out and providing updates through various daily updates on his Facebook page, and also did a Live Interactive Radio segment right here on Country 105 on Tuesday.
Mayor Wade Mills, “The Town of Shelburne recognizes that we are facing unprecedented challenges related to the COVID-19 global pandemic. We have established a Local Business Working Group to determine the challenges faced by our local businesses and help them find solutions.”
To support the efforts of the working group a call to action was made on March 25, 2020, to our Local businesses to complete Shelburne’s online survey - https://www.haveyoursayshelburne.ca.
The Town is actively sharing information on all social media channels, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and will be embarking on a social media campaign to increase support for our local businesses.
