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 This amount then gets automatically withdrawn out of your bank account.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 This amount then gets automatically withdrawn out of your bank account.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.

CHANGES TO THE

MACOUN CURLING RINK

Council of the Village of Macoun along with the Macoun Fire Service and Parks and Recreation Board are looking to make some changes to the curling rink facility. All of the drywall had to be removed due to mold

as well all the insulation in the rink had to be removed due to extreme rodent infestation. The cost to replace the insulation along with repairs required to the facility are looking to be fairly costly.

Council and the Boards are considering making some drastic changes to the facility and are currently working on receiving price quotes for material needed. The changes to the facility will create a new fire hall for the Macoun Fire Service as well as a new patio area for use by the Parks and Rec Board as well as the general public. Discussion is still in the early stages, but the groups are looking to make these changes in 2019.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Village office at 306-634-9352 to have your name added to the next meeting agenda to discuss this matter with Council.
