Liability Forms:
Did you know before public works will work on your property you must sign a Waiver of Liability form this includes things such as: removal of tree stumps, roto-rootering, thawing water lines.
 

Water Shut off and On Forms:
If you request the water to be turned off or on, you must each time sign a form once it is complete. The Town reserves a right to charge a hookup and disconnect fee. 
 

It is a home owner responsibility to know where their curb stop is and it is also their responsibility to drain
lines and shut off main in their basement when water is no longer required. This prevents broken water lines. 
 

Curb stops sometimes do not work, especially in the winter. Curb stops that don’t work in winter will be exercised in the spring to see if they are still in working order. 
 

Every year in the summer public works dedicates a day or two to finding curbstops for those that need assistance.
 

Utility Billing:
Reminder utility bills are due by April 30, 2019 otherwise interest is added for each month late. The Town of Bredenbury reserves the right to disconnect service to anyone who has an outstanding bill. Outstanding utility bills at year end are placed on homeowners taxes. 
 

If you have a renter that does not pay their utility bill, you as the homeowner will be responsible for it at year end when it is put on taxes. The onus is on the homeowner to ensure that their renter’s bills are being paid; it is highly recommended that the homeowner pay the utility bill on their own and charge it to rent.
 

Abatement of Nuisances Bylaw attached:
This refers to yards that are untidy, buildings that are dilapidated and unregistered vehicles on properties. The Town reserves the right to give notice and clean up unwanted nuisances and charge the homeowner accordingly for the said cleanup.
 

ATV Bylaw: This is a reminder that as per bylaw if you are riding a dirt bike, golf cart, quad, etc. within town limits you must enter and exit town by the fastest route to your residents.
