Pre-Authorized 

Payment Program

Why use Pre-Authorized Payments ?

The Pre-Authorized Payment Program allows ratepayers to make weekly, monthly, bi-weekly or semi-monthly payments for their property taxes and/or utility bills without paying additional fees.

How do Pre-Authorized Payments work?

PROPERTY TAXES

After deciding which Pre-Authorized Payment frequency works best for you, we simply divide your normal annual property tax levy by the number of payment periods in the year. This amount then gets automatically withdrawn out of your bank account. Prior to your annual taxes being levied, your installments will be based on the previous years tax levy. Once the current years levy is determined, your installment payment will be adjusted accordingly. You will be notified in writing of any required changes. We strive to ensure all rate payer's property taxes are paid by December 31st of each year to avoid penalty.

Property Tax Example:

January - July payments $217 / month 

(based on last years levy of $2,600)

Once taxes are levied, Pre-Authorized payments are recalculated.

2018 Actual Tax Levy minus payments already made in the year

$2,650 - $1,519 = $1,131

New Pre-Authorized payment amount for August - December

$1,131 / 5 months = $227 / month

UTILITY BILLS

After deciding which Pre-Authorized Payment frequency works best for you, we simply divide your annual estimated utility bill by the number of payment periods in the year. This amount then gets automatically withdrawn out of your bank account.

Utility Bill Example:

Estimated annual utility billing $1,085.40 

($180.90 x 6 billing periods = $1,085.40)

Pre-Authorized payment amount:

$20.90 / Weekly (52 payments)

$41.75 / Bi-weekly (26 payments)

$45.25 / Semi-monthly (24 payments)

$90.45 / Monthly (12 payments)

Pre-Authorized frequency options:

15th of each Month OR End of each Month (12 payments/year)

15th and End of each Month (24 payments per year)

Every Second Friday (26 payments per year)

Every Friday (52 payments per year)

How do I Stop my Pre-Authorized Payments?

You may withdraw from the program by providing notice of at least

one (1) week prior to your next payment date.

How Do I Apply?

Simply bring a VOID cheque or a Pre-Authorized payment form 

from your bank to the Village Office.

Sask Crime Watch Advisory

On March 7th, 2019 the Honourable Christine Tell, Minister of Corrections and

Policing and A/Commr. Mark Fisher, Commanding Officer of the Saskatchewan RCMP, along with some other community partners, announced the launch of the

Saskatchewan Crime Watch Advisory Network.

Here's what you need to know about it:

WHAT: This new network will allow Saskatchewan residents to receive credible,

accurate and timely crime prevention information directly from your local RCMP

detachment. When a detachment becomes aware of an incident or crime, they can

issue an advisory via the system and local residents who have signed up for the

program will become aware of what happened within minutes!

HOW: Signing up to be part of the network is free and only takes a few minutes.

You choose which RCMP detachment area(s) you want to receive notifications from

and how to receive them – whether it be via text message, email, phone call or

through the mobile app! Visit SARM.ca, SUMA.org or https://member.everbridge.net/index/453003085619333#/login to sign up!

WHO: Only those who have signed up to receive notifications from RCMP

detachments in Southern Saskatchewan will receive advisories.

WHY: The concept of the program is simple: sign up to receive advisories from your

local RCMP and assist them by serving as the eyes and ears of your community. If you

witness a crime in progress or have been a victim of a crime – it is imperative that you report it to police. You can call 310-RCMP, your local RCMP detachment or 911 in an emergency. This network, along with existing crime prevention programs and strategies, helps to create an environment where all of us contribute to community safety.

Crime prevention is the most effective when we all work together.

Again, we encourage everyone to sign up to be a part of the Saskatchewan Crime Watch Advisory Network.

If you have any questions, please call the Estevan RCMP Detachment at

(306)637-4400 and we will gladly assist you with signing up.
