Mayor issues order to waive late fees for sewer bills

Under the emergency powers of the mayor, Tiffin Mayor Aaron Montz issued an order to waive all late fees for sewer bills.

Montz issued the order Wednesday, which will go into effect immediately.

Due to the current COVID-19 health crisis, Montz said he will waive all late fees for residences and businesses for the months of March, April, May and June in 2020.

The authority to waive the fees is under the emergency powers of the mayor in Chapter 131 of the Tiffin City Charter.

The request to ratify the action is to be done by Tiffin City Council during the next council meeting, when public meetings will take place again.

“I feel it is necessary for the health, safety and well-being of our sewer customers during this pandemic,” Montz said in his order. “The last thing our customers need right now are worries about late fees as they struggle to make ends meet.”
