2020 Property Assessment Update Postponed

Thursday April 02, 2020
http://www.mpac.ca
As part of the Ontario Government’s Economic and Fiscal Update on March 25, 2020, the Hon.
Rod Phillips, Minister of Finance, announced the Province’s decision to postpone the 2020
Assessment Update, which would have seen the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation
(MPAC) update the assessed value of every property in Ontario this year.
In lieu of providing municipalities with updated assessed values for 2021, MPAC will deliver
property assessments based on the fully phased-in January 1, 2016 current values, which is the
same valuation date MPAC used for this year. For example, if your property value in 2020 was
$300,000, municipalities will use this same value to calculate your property taxes in 2021.
MPAC will continue to conduct regular business, including updating property information,
completing tax applications and managing Requests for Reconsideration and appeals.
If you have questions about your assessed value or the postponement of the 2020 Assessment
Update, visit mpac.ca or call 1-866-296-MPAC (6722) or TTY: 1-877-889-MPAC (6722).

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 26, 2020

County of Hastings Declares Public Emergency

“As of 8:30 a.m. this morning, March 26, 2020 I have declared a Public Emergency in accordance with the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act,” states Rick Phillips, Warden of Hastings County.

“Having conferred with my fellow County Councillors and our senior leadership team it is my opinion that it is necessary for me as Warden, to make the declaration at this time. There are four main reasons for this critical action,” said Phillips:
 A strong show of support for the Provincial Declaration of Emergency;
 To support the continuity of operations of the County in order to continue to provide services to the residents in our Manors, patients of our paramedic services, our clients and the public;
 Taking the necessary actions to support the health and safety of our staff;
 To support where we can, the operations of our local member municipalities.
“Yesterday, I spoke with Mayors of the Cities of Belleville, Quinte West and Prince Edward County about the declaration. Both Mayor Ferguson from Prince Edward County and Mayor Harrison from Quinte West advised that they intend on making their declarations simultaneously with Hastings County. As neighbours and partners in the provision of critical services to our residents and businesses it is important for us to work together as we deal with this pandemic,” Phillips stated.

“Let me also make it clear that the County of Hastings has already taken steps to ensure that it has its continuity of operations plans in place and continues to deliver essential/critical services to the public. We have taken the necessary step of closing our offices in Belleville, Quinte West, Madoc and Bancroft to the walk-in public. Our staff continue to provide services through on-line and phone arrangements,” added Phillips.

“The County of Hastings, its 14 local municipal members and our partners will, I am convinced, do all that we can to support each other during this uncertain and difficult period. Together we are strong,” stated Phillips.
