Norway pushes off property tax payment deadline to Feb. 28

NORWAY — Norway residents again will have until the end of February to pay their winter property taxes without penalty.

The Norway City Council on Monday moved the deadline for the collection of real and personal property taxes from Feb. 15 to Feb. 28.

The council has extended the deadline and waived the 3% penalty for a number of years.

Real property taxes paid after Feb. 28 are subject to a 4% penalty.

In other business, the council:

— Approved $67,296.69 from the Stormwater, Asset Management, Wastewater grant to Coleman Engineering for field work on the city’s sanitary and storm sewer systems. This pay request is expected to be the last, City Manager Ray Anderson said.

— Authorized $4,500 for mPower Innovations of Iron Mountain to consolidate and transfer the city’s geographic information system onto the city server. Coleman Engineering of Iron Mountain previously hosted the information on its own servers. The council also authorized $7,900 for mPower’s annual software maintenance fee.

— Approved $7,320.17 for Kleiman Pump and Well Drilling of Iron Mountain to replace a 25-horsepower vertical hollow shaft motor at the Aragon mine shaft.
