HARTFORD ANNOUNCES FEE RELIEF PROGRAM ON DELINQUENT TAXES

HARTFORD, CONN (December 5, 2019) –Today Mayor Luke Bronin announced a Fee Relief Program for delinquent personal property and motor vehicle taxes, which will run from December 15, 2019, to January 31, 2020.  During the Program, any taxpayer with outstanding delinquent personal property or motor vehicle tax bills will have all unpaid collection fees waived, as long as the outstanding tax and interest are paid in full.  When the Program is not in effect, the city’s tax collection agency administers a 15% fee on delinquent personal property or motor vehicle tax bills. 

“This Fee Relief Program will make it easier for residents to pay back taxes they owe,” said Mayor Luke Bronin.  “Last year we ran a Fee Relief Program for personal property taxes only, and this year we are expanding it to motor vehicle taxes as well.  We hope as many people take advantage as possible, so they can stay current with their taxes and the city receives the revenue we need to serve all of our residents.”

Once the Program ends, the City of Hartford’s collection agency will enforce the collection of remaining outstanding delinquent personal property and motor vehicle tax bills.  There will be no exceptions to the time frame of this Program.  If payment is not made by January 31, 2020, the full collection fee of 15% will be due.

HARTFORD TO OPEN WARMING CENTER AT FORMER MILNER SCHOOL BUILDING

HARTFORD TO OPEN WARMING CENTER AT FORMER MILNER SCHOOL BUILDING

HARTFORD, CONN (December 3, 2019) –Today the City of Hartford announced that this year its overnight warming center will be at the former Milner School at 104 Vine Street.  The warming center will run from December 9, 2019until March 31, 2020 from 7 PM until 7 AM each day.  The City will run a bus service between various shelters and the warming center in the evening and morning. 

“Hartford is one of the few municipalities in the region to run an overnight warming center, and this year we will be able to keep more people out of the cold on the most frigid nights of the year,” said Mayor Luke Bronin.  “As a region and as a state we need to do more to help transition people from shelters to permanent housing, and while our warming center is not a substitute for that, it is an important way to support the most vulnerable during the winter.  I want to thank the Salvation Army, Journey Home, and the Greater Hartford Coordinated Access Network for their ongoing partnership and work to support homeless individuals.”

The goal of the warming center is to keep as many people as possible out of the cold, as comfortably as possible.  The Salvation Army will operate the warming center, and the city will provide cots for individuals to lie down on.  However, if more people require shelter than cots allow for, the warming center may have to substitute chairs for cots.

“We are grateful to the City of Hartford for listening to the concerns raised by the community and for working closely with the Greater Hartford Coordinated Access Network in putting together a plan of action that will maximize resources, increase capacity for the winter, and relieve stress on the existing emergency shelter system,” said Matthew Morgan, Executive Director of Journey Home.  “We are proud of the City of Hartford and the leadership they have shown by spending countless hours to address this issue and for adding additional resources to keep as many people as possible safe and warm this winter while simultaneously working to end homelessness by providing housing to as many individuals and families as possible.”

The City’s FY2020 budget includes $192,000 to fund both the warming center and additional shelter beds for families and women.  In addition to that funding, the City will dedicate $65,000 recently received as part of the sale of Barbour Gardens to support the expanded warming center.

SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY IN HARTFORD TO FEATURE TWO DOZEN BUSINESSES WITH FREE PARKING AVAILABLE

SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY IN HARTFORD TO FEATURE TWO DOZEN BUSINESSES WITH FREE PARKING AVAILABLE

HARTFORD, CONN (November 26, 2019) – Today Mayor Luke Bronin and Business for Downtown Hartford (BFDH) announced that this Saturday, November 30th, twenty-four downtown Hartford small businesses and restaurants will be offering special discounts, giveaways, and holiday deals as part of national Small Business Saturday (SBS).  A full listing of participating businesses and a map is available here.  The Hartford Parking Authority will be offering free parking to all Small Business Saturday shoppers at 1212 Main Street near Dunkin’ Donuts Park.

“This Saturday, dozens of terrific small businesses in Hartford are offering special discounts and Winterfest’s free ice skating will be open, so I hope as many families as possible make a day of it in the Capital City,” said Mayor Bronin.  “I want to thank Business for Downtown Hartford for their support arranging SBS for the third straight year, as well as the dozens of small businesses who are participating.”

“We encourage everyone to shop small because for every dollar spent locally, sixty-eight cents stays locally,” said Wendell Davis, the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Regional Administrator for New England.  “Small business owners continue to be the backbone of our economy.”

“Business for Downtown Hartford is very excited to showcase the many shopping opportunities that are available in downtown Hartford,” said Jennifer Cassidy, Executive Director of Business for Downtown Hartford.

This is BFDH’s third year coordinating SBS, with eight new businesses participating this year.  In addition to the twenty-four businesses offering discounts, there will be a pop up market at 64 Pratt Street featuring several vendors, including handbags and accessories from BAGAVOND, Brothers Johnson 1929 Hat Co., and Hartford Athletic.

In 2010, American Express launched Small Business Saturday to encourage people to “shop small” between Black Friday and Cyber Monday to support their local businesses and communities.
