Northfield City Council waives utilities late fees

At their May 5, 2020 meeting, the Northfield City Council unanimously approved a resolution to temporarily waive late fees on utility bills. The waiver will provide financial relief to Northfield residents and businesses due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

 “We know that many businesses and individuals are being substantially impacted financially by the important community mitigation strategies of COVID-19 and that a suspension of fees may be helpful as they navigate these challenges,” said Brenda Angelstad, City of Northfield’s finance director.

The 1.5% monthly late fees will not be charged on April to July bills to residents and businesses, which are mailed May to August.
