Local government | July 7, 2016

Due to the potential for interruption of postal service the City of Mississauga has made alternate arrangements. The following information will be updated as required.

All residential property tax bills were mailed the week of June 10. Commercial/industrial tax bills were mailed the week of June 24. Bills paid by mortgage companies in bulk were couriered as per usual practice.  Payment can be made through banks, telephone and internet banking and at the Cashier Desk, 300 City Centre Drive. The Cashier Desk is open Monday to Friday, 8:15 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. A drop box is available for after hour payment on the north side of the building. Late payment charges will not be waived for any bill that has been issued.

Council and Committees of Council

Legislated Public Notices to be provided either through newspaper advertisement or by personal service and fax (to be determined by the size of the distribution.)  Public Notices are also provided online at mississauga.ca/portal/cityhall/publicnotices.
