Utility Billing

Utility bills are sent out every two months as follows:
  • February
  • April
  • June
  • August
  • October
  • December. 

Utility bills include:
  • Water
  • Stormwater
  • Sewer
  • Recycling
  • Garbage fees

Bills are addressed to the name of the property owner, as per Land Titles notification.  

If you are interested in paying your water/ sewer/garbage utility bills directly through your bank account, under the town's pre-authorized payment plan for utilities, the account holder will still receive a paper copy of the bi-monthly levy. The Town will directly debit your bank account on the 15th of the month following your utility bill.

A Fibre Community

The Town of Nanton provides residents and business owners access to the highest speed Internet services available through broadband technology.  Broadband is not Internet, as it is often mistaken for.  However, it is about being connected. By having fibre-to-the-premise (FTTP) infrastructure, we can be connected to the global market in the comfort of our small-town homes and business.
