Paying Utility Bills
The City manages the municipality's water and sewer utility services.
All new accounts need to visit City Hall to sign up for utility services. A meter deposit is required before water can be put into a person's name. To do this, you must provide a current mailing address and identification, such as, a driver's license or health card.
Utility accounts are linked to the property, NOT the customer. If you move to a new property in Humboldt, your account number will change. If you are moving, contact City Hall at least two full business days before your move so that your account can be closed and/or transferred. You are responsible for all charges until the account is closed.
Utility bills can be paid at most financial institutions, credit unions, by mail or in person at City Hall. Cash, cheque or debit payments are accepted. Please make cheques payable to "City of Humboldt." Credit card payments are not accepted.
If using online banking, use the account number from your water bill without the decimal. Do not use your meter number! Banks typically require 5-7 digits; use zeros to fill in the spaces. (Note: You must use the website of your financial institution and set up your account as indicated as the City itself does not accept online payments.)
If paying through the mail, include your Payment Return Slip and send to: City Hall, P.O. Box 640, Humboldt, SK, S0K 2A0. Do not send cash in the mail.
Paperless utility billing, or e-billing, is a free service offered by the City of Humboldt. If you would like to receive your regular water and sewer bill via email - please email us your information - include your account number - and place "Paperless Billing" in the subject line.
Currently, this service applies only to your water and sewer bills as the City does not yet have the capability to provide paperless billing for taxes.

Tax Installment Payment Plan Service (TIPPS)

TIPPS applications are accepted anytime throughout the year, but any missed monthly payments from January 1 must be paid at the time of application.
