Residents in North Kesteven who missed making council tax payments during the Coronavirus lockdown are being reminded that they need to bring their accounts up to date.
Leader of the Council, Cllr Richard Wright said: “Some residents may simply have forgotten to pay their council tax and others may have been unable to do so for physical or financial reasons.
“We understand this but we need people to bring their accounts up to date or make alternative arrangements so we can continue to provide essential services that we all rely on. People who have missed payments should bring their accounts up to date so the authority does not need to issue a reminder.”
The Council understands that some people are facing uncertain and difficult times as a result of the pandemic lockdown and there are a number of ways it can help.
