A Message from Village of Mayo Council for Travelers visiting Mayo and the Silver Trail Region

June 19, 2020

The Village of Mayo would like to advise travelers planning to visit the community of Mayo that they are expected to abide by the most recent guidance issued by Yukon’s Chief Medical Officer regarding traveling through rural communities.

Travelers are advised to bring the supplies they will need for the duration of their trip to Mayo and the Silver Trail area.

Services are limited at this time: The Binet House Museum and McIntyre Park are closed for the 2020 season; the restaurant is closed; the Snack Bar– call ahead; local accommodations – call ahead; the grocery store only allows a limited number of patrons in the store at one time; some establishments have reduced hours of operation.

Practice the “safe six” recommendations for keeping yourself and others healthy (keeping two meters from others, frequent washing of your hands, stay home if you are feeling sick, do not gather in large groups, avoid unnecessary travel, self-isolate if you just traveled outside the Yukon or have come in contact with someone who has been diagnosed with covid-19). Please respect the specific rules local stores and offices have in place.

For more information, visit “Yukon.ca/covid-19”.

Mayo residents are reminded to heed the same rules when traveling to, traveling through, or visiting family and friends in other Yukon communities or outside Yukon.

Keep safe and keep healthy!

We look forward to welcoming everyone again in the future when life returns to normal.

2020 Property Tax Deadline Extension

The Yukon Government and Yukon Municipalities have extended the 2020 Property Tax due date for individuals and businesses to September 2, 2020, in order to help Yukoners who are financially affected by COVID-19.

This will assist those who may not be able to pay by the regular deadline of July 2, 2020.

Municipalities rely on other governments for a large portion of their operating expenses to provide essential services to their residents – like potable water, sewage disposal, maintaining roads, fire protection, etc.

As a result, governments (Federal, Territorial, First Nations, Yukon Housing, Yukon Energy, Banks, Mortgage Companies, etc.) will not be included in this property tax extension and will be subject to the normal payment deadline of July 2, 2020.

This strategy is aimed at people who will have difficulties paying their tax bill on time.

The Village of Mayo encourages those individuals and businesses that aren’t in that situation to pay their property taxes by July 2, 2020, so we can continue providing the services we all rely on.

Thank you.
