How to pay your utility bill

Visit the Payment Options page for more information.

Account set up

Please contact the Utility Clerk  to set up your account, or complete the Request for Final Water Reading Form to ensure that a final reading is scheduled for the closing date, if required.

We will require the following information:

  • Property address
  • Legal closing date
  • Name(s) that will appear on the bill
  • Telephone number where we can contact you
  • Mailing address

There will be a one-time account registration fee of $25.00 that will be invoiced to you.

Selling your house

You need to contact us before you move to request a final meter reading on the closing date. This ensures that the account is transferred to the new owners and they are billed for the water they use. Your final bill will be mailed to your forwarding address and includes consumption from your last regular reading date to the final reading date.

We will require the following information:

  • Property address
  • Legal closing date
  • A forwarding address to send your final bill

Please contact the Utility Clerk or complete the Request for Final Water Reading Form.

Tenants and landlords

A property owner can grant permission for the Municipality to send the utility bill to their tenant with written authorization. Forms shall be returned to the Treasury Department. Forms required include:

  1. Account Information Change Form – signed by the property owner
  2. Pre-Authorized Payment Form – tenant must enroll in pre-authorized payments
  3. Tenant Authorization to Release Utility Information to Landlord Form – signed by the tenant

The account remains the responsibility of the property owner and failure to pay this account shall result in the transfer of any outstanding balance to the property owner's tax account, subject to transfer fees.

Penalty and statement fees

Penalty is applicable on the first day of default, and every 30 days thereafter. After 90 days, arrears are transferred to the tax roll and collected in the same manner as tax arrears. The penalty rate is 1.25% per month, or 15% per year.

Arrears statements are sent out monthly at a rate of $5.00/statement. For all transfers to the tax roll, you will be charged a $20.00 fee.

Statements of account or a reprint of your bill are available upon request, for a fee of $18.00.
