COQUITLAM, B.C., March 23, 2021 – There are a few days left to pay utility fees before the March 31 deadline.
After March 31, a five per cent penalty will be added to amounts unpaid. A further five per cent penalty is added to unpaid amounts on Sept. 30.
Utility notices were issued at the end of February and cover the costs for utilities that residents use in their homes every day, such as water service, garbage and green waste collection, and sewer service for residences with secondary suites.
The cost for these utility services is charged separately from property taxes and supports operating costs as well as the replacement of aging infrastructure such as pipes, reservoirs, pumps and more.
Questions About Your Utility Notice?
Residents who have questions about their utility notice, or think there may be an error in their fees, can contact the City’s Revenue Services at 604-927-3050 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
How to Pay
There are several options available to pay your utility bill. Residents choosing to pay in person should note that there is construction currently taking place at Buchanan Square outside of City Hall, which will affect pedestrian access on Burlington Drive today and tomorrow. City Hall also has physical-distancing measures in place, and lineups to pay in person may be long as a result.
