Late Fees Waived For Homes Affected By Explosion In Mississauga

It’s really the least the city can do for them, considering the circumstances. 

City council will be waiving property tax late fees for homeowners affected by last week’s explosion, according to an article from the Mississauga News. 

The motion was called for by area councillor Chris Fonseca on Wednesday. He requested that the owners of 69 addresses near the explosion site not have to pay late fees on their property tax, considering that their houses are currently deemed unsafe to live in. 

The affected houses are on Hickory Drive and Dixie and Rathburn roads. According to Mississauga Fire Chief Tim Beckett, it could be a matter of months before they’re allowed to return to their homes. 

The investigation into the cause of the explosion is still ongoing.
