With the possible upcoming Canada Post strike, this may cause a delay in the delivery and receipt of Town utility bills and payments. Because you are still required to keep your account up to date during a postal strike, we want to make sure that you are aware of the options available to you, outside of mailing, for quick and easy receipt and payment of your monthly invoice. Here are some possible options:
- Sign up for e-bills to receive your invoice immediately to your inbox (sign-up form can be found on website under “Utilities and Services”)
- Pay through online banking (contact your individual bank if you need assistance)
- Drop off payments physically at the Town Office or after hours in the drop box near the front door
- Sign up for utility autopay to have payments automatically be taken out monthly (sign-up form can be found on website under “Utilities and Services”)
A Public Hearing is scheduled for Proposed Bylaw No. 402-18 – Amendments to the Land Use Bylaw and proposed Bylaw No. 401-18 – Consumption of Cannabis in Public Places.
