Richmond utility bills due next week

The deadline for flat rate utility bill payments is quickly approaching.

Bill payments are due Tuesday, June 30.

The deadline, originally March 31, was extended by three months due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Payments made on or before the extended deadline will still be eligible for the 10 per cent early payment discount, according to the city.

While cash payments won’t be accepted at City Hall until after Sept. 30, due to the pandemic, residents can still pay in-person, with cheque, debit or credit card. City hall is currently open to the public from 8:15 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday.

Other way to pay include:

  • Through your financial institution –  online banking, bank machine/ATM, in person or by phone;
  • Online via credit card;
  • By mail – cheques must be made payable to the City of Richmond. Post-dated cheques for the due date on the bill are acceptable. However, postmarks will not be accepted as date of payment;
  • 24-hour drop box at City Hall, at 6911 No. 3 Road on the west side of the building;

More information on payment options can be found on the city’s website.
