City Hall Open Hours Change

By August 4, 2020No Comments

Due to the overwhelming adoption of online payments, and the July 31st early payment discount date for residential utilities, City Hall will have reduced opening hours for cash and debit payments. The hours for debit and cash payments for the period of August 4, 2020 through to September 4, 2020 will be 10:00 AM to noon Monday – Friday. The reduced hours will provide City Hall staff additional time to respond to phone and email inquiries. Residents can phone 250-378-4224 and schedule a meeting with a City employee or the Mayor. Press 5 during your call to reach a Finance Department employee for billing or payment inquiries.

The Planning and Development offices on the main floor of City Hall are open from 8:30 PM to 4:30 PM (closed at lunch) for general building inquiries or to schedule an appointment. Phone 250-378-8615 or email

We thank all taxpayers who have already paid their 2020 property taxes and remind those who have not that September 30, 2020 is the last day to pay without a penalty. A 5% penalty will be applied to all unpaid 2020 taxes on October 1, 2020.
