Understanding your Utility Bill
Water & Sewer Utility Payment
Pre-Authorized Debit and Equalized Payments
There are two ways to receive your Water & Sewer Utility Bill. By regular mail or by e-billing.
The town is aiming to have 80-90 percent of residents signed up for e-billing in 2018. By receiving your bill electronically, the town saves on the costs of paper, labour, and postage. One of the most significant costs we have in generating water and sewer bills is postage. Currently, we produce over 5,000 pieces of mail per year related to water and sewer billings. Moving to a monthly billing cycle means that we will generate nearly 15,000 pieces of mail per year. Some residents are already receiving their bills via email, and we are encouraging residents to sign up for this service.
If you would like to receive your utility bill by email please sign the bottom of the appropriate form below and email completed forms to .

Cash, Cheque, Interac Debit, Pre-Authorized Debit Payment or Online Banking Payments (We do not accept Credit Card payments)
- The Town accepts Cash, Cheque, or Debit at the Town Office. We are open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday to Friday. If you are unable to come during these hours there is a mail chute you can leave your cheque in, please leave it in an envelope with your name, account number, and civic address so the payment can be properly applied.
- Pre-Authorized Debit Payment is now available for Utility Billing. The Town will directly withdraw the funds from your bank account on the last day of the month that a utility payment is due. This will give residents time to review their utility bill before funds are withdrawn from their account. Submit this form to sign up for Pre-Authorized Debit.
- The Town also accepts online banking payments. Changes are being made to our online bill payment through your banking institution. If you are currently set up for online bill payment you will need to make these changes. Please follow these steps to set up the Town with your online banking:

Make it easier on the environment, when you sign up for Pre-Authorized Debit, sign up for our utility e-billing at the same time. Get your utility bill sent to your email instead of a paper copy being delivered to your mail-box! With Pre-Authorized Debit you won’t need the paper reminder.
With Pre-Authorized Debit the Town is now able to offer equalized payments. Equalized payments will be available to residents who have signed up for PAD and have been at their service address for one year or more. Similar to SaskPower or SaskEnergy equalized payments will take billing from the previous year and split it into eleven (11) equal payments with the twelfth (12th) payment being a recalculation month which would determine if more or less water was used than the previous year average.
The recalculation month will be January of each year.
