**** HRM Media Release
The Halifax Regional Municipality continues to monitor and respond to the rapidly evolving effects of COVID-19.
The municipality is committed to taking important steps in reducing spread of COVID-19.
Based on decisions made by the province of Nova Scotia yesterday, all customer service centres and Planning & Development counter services are closed to the public effective immediately. Staff at the centres will continue to work, focusing on administrative support that does not involve face-to-face customer service.
Residents are encouraged to use the municipality’s online services via halifax.ca, including:
- Pay property taxes
- Pay parking tickets
- Report an issue to 311
An online service to receive construction permit applications is under development and will be operational early next week.
