Utility bills in Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam due March 31 — or risk paying 5% extra

Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam homeowners are expected to pay the full amount before the end of the month.
Water, garbage, recycling and sewer utility bills are due March 31, 2023, in Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam.

The deadline is near for Tri-Cities property owners to pay their utility bills.

Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam homeowners are being reminded to pay their water, garbage, sewer and recycling bills in full by next Friday (March 31).

The bills cover the cost of each home utility between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31 this year.

And, if not settled on time, residents in both municipalities are set to issue a five per cent late-fee penalty on any outstanding amount.

From there, Port Coquitlam property owners will risk an additional five per cent fine if not paid by May 31.

In Coquitlam, there's a five-month period before homeowners incur the next five per cent penalty on Sept. 30.

"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 and pumps," a city news release stated.

Meanwhile, Port Moody's utility bills were due more than three weeks ago — Feb. 28 — but March 31 is also an important deadline.

That's when its second five per cent late-fee fine will come into play for residents that haven't paid their full utility bills.
