2021 Water, Sewer and Garbage Utility Fees

Residents are advised that the 2021 water, sewer and garbage utility bills have been mailed out.  If you have not received your bill by March 15 please contact the Village Office at 250-367-7551 or email info@village.fruitvale.bc.ca.

The 2021 water, sewer and garbage utility bills were sent out March 1. A 5% discount is offered until March 31 on utilities and extra packages of garbage bags. If you have not received your utility bill by March 15, please contact the Village Office.

As the Village Office continues to be closed to the public, payment options are as follows:

  • Cheques, bank drafts and/or money orders mailed to or placed in the drop box at the Village Office;
  • Online banking through your financial institution (Royal Bank and TD Bank excluded);
  • E-transfers sent to finance@village.fruitvale.bc.ca.  Please reference your roll number, property address and what you are paying.  A password is not required for the e-transfer as the Village is set up as an automatic deposit; or
  • Credit card payments made through the PayTm app on your mobile device. If using the app, your utilities account number can be found on the left side of the utility bill, just above the due date. Use the 13 numbers, no spaces.

The Village of Fruitvale has a monthly preauthorized prepayment plan for utilities and property taxes. This is a prepayment plan for next year’s utilities and property taxes. Current charges must be paid before the prepayment plan can begin. For more information and details on the preauthorized prepayment plan, please contact the Village Office.

The package of garbage bags included with the utility billing can be picked-up beginning March 1. The Utility Fees do not need to be paid before picking up this package of bags. Call the Village Office, 250-367-7551, to make arrangements for pick up.

ATTENTION HOME OWNERS!  Effective 2021 - New Homeowner Grant Application Process
The home owner grant is available to eligible homeowners who pay property taxes.

Effective 2021, homeowners in municipalities no longer apply for the home owner grant through their municipal office.  Everyone now applies directly to the province using a new online system that’s easy to use. The system will be available in early 2021.
Although the application process has changed, program details and eligibility requirements have not changed.  The new system helps ensure homeowners receive their full grant entitlement, including the additional grant for seniors or persons with a disability.  It also helps process applications faster and reduce fraudulent applications.
Important: Early applications are not being accepted at this time.  To be notified when the system goes live, subscribe to our What's New in BC Property Taxes page.  
For more information about the home owner grant visit gov.bc.ca/homeownergrant
