Pre-Authorized 
Payment Program

Why use Pre-Authorized Payments ?

The Pre-Authorized Payment Program allows ratepayers to make weekly, monthly, bi-weekly or semi-monthly payments for their property taxes and/or utility bills without paying additional fees.

 

How do Pre-Authorized Payments work?

PROPERTY TAXES

After deciding which Pre-Authorized Payment frequency works best for you, we simply divide your normal annual property tax levy by the number of payment periods in the year. This amount then gets automatically withdrawn out of your bank account. Prior to your annual taxes being levied, your instalments will be based on the previous years tax levy.  We strive to ensure all rate payer's property taxes are paid by December 31st of each year to avoid penalty.

Property Tax Example:

January - July payments $217 / month 

(based on last years levy of $2,600)

Actual Tax Levy minus payments already made in the year: $2,650 - $1,519 = $1,131

New Pre-Authorized payment amount for August - December: $1,131 / 5 months = $227 / month

 

Utility Bills

After deciding which Pre-Authorized Payment frequency works best for you, we simply divide your annual estimated utility bill by the number of payment periods in the year. This amount then gets automatically withdrawn out of your bank account.

Utility Bill Example:

Estimated annual utility billing $1,097.40

($182.90 x 6 billing periods = $1,097.40)

Pre-Authorized payment amount:

$21.10 / Weekly (52 payments)

$42.21 / Bi-weekly (26 payments)

$45.73 / Semi-monthly (24 payments)

$91.45 / Monthly (12 payments)

 

Pre-Authorized frequency options:

Monthly (12 payments/year)

Semi-Month (24 payments per year)

Bi-Week (26 payments per year)

Weekly (52 payments per year)

 

How do I Stop my Pre-Authorized Payments?

You may withdraw from the program by providing written notice of at least one week prior to your next payment date.

 

How Do I Apply?

Simply bring a VOID cheque or a Pre-Authorized payment form from your bank to the Village Office.

Pest Control in Village Limits

Do you have a pest problem on your property? Dealing with mice, gophers or other rodents eating vegetation and digging holes in your yard?

 

Be sure to address the matter in a safe way to protect yourself, your neighbours and animals that could potentially access the infected rodent. Provincial Specialists in Pesticide Regulations encourage pest control to be completed by a Provincially Accredited Pest Control Officer. This will ensure proper procedures and protocols are used during the treatment to avoid risk to persons or animals in your community.

 

If you choose not to use a Pest Control Officer, be sure to research the products your looking to use as some products, such as strychnine, are prohibited in Urban centres. Purchase products that are designed for pests such as plastic gopher / mole traps, mouse or rat traps or Rozol. Most importantly, be sure to follow the instructions or directions on the packaging of the product you purchase as they are a legal document which must be followed to ensure safety and avoid liability.  

Emergency Notification System

H2Safety (H2Notify) is our notification system that allows the village to contact you in real time for emergency notifications.  This system also allows us to send you notifications in regards to changes to the water system, major road closure or repairs, newsletters or other major events in the village.  The emergency notification is not optional, the others are recommended.
