Avoid Late Fees on 2022 Utility Bills

Couple paying bill online

COQUITLAM, B.C., June 29, 2021 – Coquitlam residents have a few days left to pay their utility bills before incurring a five per cent penalty. 

Utility bills were issued at the end of February and cover the costs for utilities that residents use in their homes every day, such as water service, sewer service, garbage and green waste collection. The cost for these utility services is charged separately from property taxes and supports operating costs, as well as the replacement of aging infrastructure such as pipes, reservoirs, pumps and more.

The City has deferred the first utility bill late payment fee of five per cent from accounts unpaid after March 31 to July 4 in order to align with the first late fee for property taxes. 

After July 4, a five per cent penalty will be added to amounts unpaid. A further five per cent penalty is added to accounts unpaid after October 1, 2022.

The City also has a Utilities Instalment Plan available for your 2023 Utility Bill. This plan splits the bill into six pre-authorized payments for those who want to pay in smaller, more manageable amounts over the course of a year. The first withdrawal for 2023 utility bills is on August 1, 2022.

Questions About Your Utility Bill?

Residents who have questions about their utility bill, or think there may be an error in their fees, can contact the City’s Revenue Services at 604-927-3050 or email utility_info@coquitlam.ca.
