PENTICTON - Residents now have an easier, greener option for paying their bills with a new e-service being provided by the city.
Electric Utility users can sign up for electronic bills, which arrive each month in PDF file format directly to the customer’s email inbox.
“The City is proud to offer convenient services like e-bills for our residents. Customers asked for innovation, and we are pleased to deliver it,” says Mayor Garry Litke. “The more business conducted electronically means less waste in general. E-bills are a great way to take it easy on the environment and the pocketbook.”
Customers interested in using the service need to register with MyCity online and sign up for the service. Once an account has been created and activated, the customer needs to register the account and select account type “Utility” and enter the account code found on the monthly bill, and click “Register.” Lastly, click the registered account and then on the tab that says “eBills” on the side menu, and select desired method of delivery, mail or e-billing.
The City is offering a special promotion for customers interested in transferring to e-bills. Anyone who registers before Feb. 28, 2015 will be automatically entered into monthly draws for prizes including, Penticton Vees tickets, concert tickets and Community Centre passes, with the grand prize draw to win an iPad.
The earlier you sign up, the more chances there are to win, and current e-bill customers will also be entered to win.
MyCity users can also view archived and new property tax notices online once customers have register their tax folio number to the account.
