Town Utility Bills - Utility bills are sent out at the end of each month.  The billing is for water, sewer, garbage and gas services.  The bill is due 3 weeks after the billing date; unless otherwise stated on the bill.  There will be a penalty of 3.99% issued on any current month charges outstanding after the penalty date of that month.  Utility bills can be paid at either bank in Daysland, Town Office or through your bank electronic bill payment.  For payments after office hours they may be left in the library drop box. We have an option for preauthorized payments available at the Town Office. Just come in and fill out the form, attach a void cheque, and your bill will automatically come out every month.

Utility accounts can be set up for equalized billing.  This is done prior to the May billings each year for accounts in current standing.  Contact the office to arrange equalized billing and you will be advised of the amount for your utility account.

For natural gas emergencies after office hours contact 780 – 382 – 2116.

 

Property Taxes – Property taxes are assessed from January to December.  The tax and assessment notices are sent out at the end of May and are due August 15 this year.  There is a penalty assessed on any outstanding amount August 15 and December 31 each year.  For those that are interested in a tax installment program you can sign up for it each January at the Town Office.  (The tax balance must be at a zero as of December 31.)

 

Garbage Collection – Garbage pickup is contracted through Flagstaff Regional Solid Waste Management in Sedgewick.  Their phone number is 780 – 384 – 3950.

Basic Garbage and environmental charges will apply to everyone even if you do not get your garbage picked up as the Town is charged for garbage and landfill costs on a per capita basis from Flagstaff Waste Management.

Residential garbage pickup is Wednesday.  Each residence is allowed up to 4 bags of garbage.  If you have additional bags there is a fee of $1.00 per bag.  Additional bags require garbage tags on them.  Garbage bag tags can be purchased at the Town Office, 10 tags per book for $10.00.  Bags are to be set out by 7am or your garbage may not get picked up.  To prevent animal infestation into your garbage it is recommended that it be placed in an enclosed receptacle.

Transfer Site (Garbage Dump)- Hours - Tuesday 8:30 until noon and Saturday 8:30 until noon. There is a $5/visit charge to use the transfer site.

The Town does try to schedule a large garbage pickup for sometime in the spring. Watch the Town Newsletter, Facebook page, or Announcements tab for the dates of these events.

Various businesses and community buildings have rented garbage bins and these are only to be used by the authorized groups.  Additional charges are incurred by the businesses if extra dumping of these bins is required, so please do not dump your garbage in their bins.
