The City of Trail issues utility invoices for annual water, sewer and garbage services via Canada Post around the third week of January of each year. Property owners are eligible to receive a 7.5% discount of the utility invoice if payment is received on or before the last day in February.
If a property owner does not take advantage of the early payment discount, utility invoices are payable in full prior to December 31. If unpaid as of December 31, the amount will be transferred to the property tax arrears account with a 10 percent penalty.
The City accepts cash, cheque, debit card, Mastercard or Visa and payments can be made safely and securely using our online payment system.
Property owners must be responsible to ensure utility invoices are paid. Advertising is placed in the local newspaper alerting property owners that invoices have been mailed and advising that they should contact City Hall if not received.
