UTILITIES

The Town of Valleyview utility services include Gas, Water, Sewer, Garbage and Recycling.

If you are moving into a new home or rental you will need to set up a new utility account in advance of move in date. Please come into the Town Administration Office for any new accounts or changes. The Office will require your name, phone numbers, addresses, move in date, and whether or not you own or rent. Utility accounts can only be registered in the property owners name; in case of rentals, the property owner may require a utility deposit, wherein the utilities can be registered in the name of the renter.

Moving out? Please inform the Town Administration Office in advance when you are moving out of your residence so that staff can appropriately bill you for the month. A forwarding address will be needed so that we can send your final bill, or cheque if your deposit is larger than your final charges.
