As March comes to a close, so too is the deadline to pay your City of Prince Rupert utility taxes

Those that have yet to pay their utility fees to the City of Prince Rupert have but a few days left to get the cash to the civic treasury.

The utility bills began to arrive across the city in mid February, this year's bills host an increase of thirty dollars compared to a year ago.

The Deadline for payment of the water, garbage and sewer fees for 2024 is this Thursday and as the city notes today, that may mean that the online option is no longer feasible for residents to make use of.

At this point it MAY be too late to pay for your utility bills online as the payment can sometimes take 3-4 days to process. 

If you want to be sure to get the discount, please come to the front desk or drop a cheque in the City's mailslot by 4:30 pm on Thursday. 

A note that credit card payments are not accepted.

The City has provided some additional background towards the payment deadline through their Social Media stream today.

Once the Utility tax deadline passes, the city's attention will turn to July and the collection of Property taxes from residents and businesses in the community.

Last fall the city set an increase of 7.7 percent for property taxes for 2024.

  1. Hopefully this will be the last payment of property tax and utilities before they start the big water project.

    Going to be a tough few years for the city (quality of life wise). Hopefully once a few more buildings get taken care of around town and completion of the new build projects in town, things might feel more optimistic in town.
