The RM of Woodlands is enacting several preventative measures aimed at helping to slow the spread of COVID-19 and to minimize its impact on our health care system and in our community.
We have taken numerous proactive measures as far as our internal operations go to ensure these services can continue with minimal disruption.
Effective March 18, 2020 Council of the RM of Woodlands has cancelled all Committee of the Whole meetings for the foreseeable future.
Scheduled council meetings and hearings will continue and be open to the public so long as recommended social distancing requirements can be adhered to.
This situation is changing rapidly. The RM of Woodlands is in constant communication with Provincial authorities and we will continue to evaluate our approach and inform the public of any changes we make to our municipal response.
We encourage all members of the public to visit https://www.gov.mb.ca/covid19/ which is being updated daily by the Province of Manitoba with information on its response. Health-related questions or concerns about COVID-19 (coronavirus) can also be direct to Health Links at 204-788-8200 or 1-888-315-9257.
Council of the R.M. of Woodlands has made the decision to waive penalty fees for unpaid utility bills for up to two months following the due date of April 30, 2020. Late fees will be waived until June 30, 2020.
During this unprecedented time , Council is exploring ways to support those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. We understand that not everyone may have the ability to pay bills on time, however those who are able to meet the due date are encouraged to do so.
