The semi-annual City of Merritt residential utility invoices were mailed in October. The due date to receive the 10% discount is November 30, 2017. Invoices unpaid at December 31, 2017 will be transferred to the property tax account.
New Property Owners
With the recent increase in real estate activity, we have made a number of new owners updates to our system based on information provided by BC Land Titles. The new owner mailing address information provided by Land Titles is not always correct. For example, Land Titles may provide us with a street address for a property that was previously set up to receive mail at a PO Box at the Post Office at 2040 Voght Street. Invoices sent to the street address will come back to us as undeliverable. It is up to the new owner to either set up a new PO Box at the Post Office or sign up for mail delivery to a community mailbox.
If you have recently purchased a home in the City and did not receive a current utility bill please contact the finance department at 250-378-4224 or by email at email@example.com. We will correct your mailing information and provide you with a BC Assessment address change form to complete that will ensure you receive your 2018 property assessment.
If you have moved to a new rental location in the City of Merritt and you are responsible for the utility payments please let us know if you did not receive the latest City of Merritt utility invoice. Contact the finance department at 250-378-4224 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
