|Just over 24 hours remain for Prince Rupert homeowners to
pay their Utility bills with a discount available
While many residents are perhaps occupied with a review of last week's Budget Presentation and since reduced proposed tax hike of 13.4% (down from the original 15.7% tax call) another tax concern is looming large for those that haven't been watching the calendar.
The City of Prince Rupert today reminded residents of the community that the 2023 Utility Taxes are due for payment by the end of business on Friday, after that your opportunity to take advantage of the discount will be gone.
As we noted earlier this year, the City of Prince Rupert Utility Taxation bills hit the mail in mid February, this year as has been the case in the recent past, bringing another slight increase to the goals for ratepayers for annual Water and Sewer fees.
The 2023 tax call from the City saw a slight decrease for Garbage/Recycling from 2022, that following last years launch of the Blue Tub program in the city.
Our notes from February, included a bit of a historical timeline towards the Utility Payment requests over the last eight years.
