ANNUAL UTILITY INVOICES
Annual utility invoices will be issued to owners of properties serviced with water, sewer and/or garbage collection by the SCRD on April 30, 2019.
Payments received after 4:30 pm on the due date are subject to a 2% penalty on the outstanding balance. Subsequent penalties will be applied to the account for each month that it remains outstanding (applied on the close of business on the 15th of each month).
Balances that remain unpaid as of December 31st of the current year will be transferred to property taxes. Once the amount is transferred to property taxes it is no longer a debt with the SCRD and must be paid towards your property tax account.
See Collection of Unpaid Amounts section for more information.
Payments are first applied to any arrears then current charges. The due date shown on your bill is the date when the current charges are due. Any arrears should be paid as soon as you receive your invoice.
