Annual Maintenance 



Annual maintenance fee

All maintenance fees are due prior to June 1st each year. An invoice will be forwarded to your business, at the address indicated on your application form. It is the owner's responsibility to advise the County if the ownership or address of the business changes at any time. Annual maintenance fees are subject to Harmonized Sales Tax (HST). Signs that are removed due to non-payment of the annual maintenance fee are subject to reinstallation costs, which must be paid in full prior to the sign being reinstalled.

Request for sign removal

If your business or organization ceases to operate, you are required to complete and submit the Sign Removal Request Form. Your signs will then be removed and will be available for pick up if requested.
