Utility billing is done quarterly. Bills are mailed out within the first week of January, April, July and October. If you have not received your bill by the middle of the month, please contact City Hall for your account balance and to verify that your mailing address is correct.
You have the option to receive your utility bill by email. This helps save paper and also gets your bill to you up to a week sooner than bills sent out by regular mail. Click on the document below for the e-billing application form and for more information about the e-billing process.
Paying Utility Bills Online
You may wish to pay your utility bill through online banking. Search
for 'Meadow Lake' under payees, and you should find Meadow Lake (City) -
Utilities. You will be asked for the account number that you are
paying. With the new utility billing format, you now have a 13 digit
account number. Please use the middle 7 digit number to set up your
account (this will be the same account number you had before the new
billing system). If your financial institution requires you to enter a 9
digit account number, please add LEADING zeros. Adding zeros at the end
could result in a valid utility account for another customer. For
example, if you account number was 005-1234567-000, you would enter this
as 001234567. NOTE: We only have online banking services set up with the three local financial institutions: CIBC, Credit Union, and RBC. If you bank at another institution, you will need to make alternative arrangements.
