LaSalle Facilities and Services during COVID-19

The Town of LaSalle is taking the following precautions and adjusting its services to limit the number of people at an event and to encourage physical distancing:

LaSalle Council Meetings

As part of the ongoing response to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the Town of LaSalle will host their Regular Meeting of Council online. Members of LaSalle Council will meet electronically, and the meeting will be streamed live on the Town of LaSalle's YouTube Channel.

In accordance with LaSalle's Procedural By-law, a Regular Meeting of Council held electronically allows public participation via video conference technology. Those wishing to participate must contact the Clerk’s office to register. Written comments from the public regarding an agenda item are encouraged. Comments from the public regarding an agenda item must be received in writing by the Clerk for the Town of LaSalle no later than on the day of the meeting by noon to be included during the meeting. 

Property Taxes and Water Bills

The Town of LaSalle, in conjunction with the other local county municipalities, have been waiving penalty and interest on property tax and/or water bill payments since April 2020. Late payment fees will now be applied to outstanding balances on property taxes and water bills beginning on October 1, 2020, and will be charged on the first of every month thereafter.

Convenient pre-authorized payment plans are available: automatic withdrawals on the due dates, a 10-month plan and a 12-month plan. For those who start a monthly pre-authorized payment plan before October 1, the outstanding balance will be divided between the payments in October, November and December to clear the balance by the end of 2020, avoiding penalty and interest charges. Pre-authorized payment forms are available on the Payment Options page on the Town's website or at the Tax Counter at the LaSalle Civic Centre.
