Either the City will receive payment for the rental, <br />or, in cases where the rental is at no charge to the renter, the City will not be required <br />to pay. <br />*** This information is available in accessible formats upon request. *** <br />Please call 519-741-2345 or TTY 1-866-969-9994 for assistance. <br />
