Utility Bill Payment Deferral
In response to the unprecedented economic effects of COVID-19, the Town of Sundre Council has approved a bill payment deferral program for customers who have been directly affected by the pandemic. If you are unable to continue operating your business, experiencing loss of employment or are self-isolating due to COVID-19, you may request a deferral of payment up to June 30th,2020 for your Utility bill. Monthly utility billings will continue to be distributed and overdue charges will be reflected on your account.
This deferral is only a delay of payment, not a cancellation or waiver of the utility charges.
We would encourage payments periodically to prevent large balances owing at the end of the deferral period.
To register, provide your Utility Account Number along with up to date contact information on the deferral form below. Forms can be printed from our website at www.sundre.com or have been included with your bill. Please send completed forms via e-mail to email@example.com, by fax (403) 638-2100, by mail to Sundre Town Office, Box 420, Sundre, AB. T0M 1X0, or deposit in the drop-box located outside the Town office.

Sundre’s Waste Collection contractor, Environmental 360, are picking up and landfilling all items in the Black (waste) and Blue (recycle) bins during this crisis. These measures are taken to protect their workers and customers from further spread of the virus due to handling of recyclables.
NOTE: Residents’ pickup schedule will remain the same.**
