Covid-19 Relief

Mayor and Council are concerned about the impact Covid-19 has had on Dawson City businesses. In the 2020 Annual Operating Budget, Council approved funds for the purpose of providing some relief to businesses. On December 9, 2020, council by resolution approved a rebate program for Dawson City businesses. All businesses licensed to operate in the City of Dawson for 2020 and operate from a premise in the City, are eligible. A rebate equal to a minimum of $125 to a maximum of one-quarter of annual water, sewer and waste charges is available.
