City of North Bay prepares for potential mail disruption

NORTH BAY, ON – July 4, 2016 – The City of North Bay would like to notify residents that mail delivery may be interrupted or delayed by a possible labour disruption at Canada Post. 

Here are a few important things to keep in mind should this disruption happen:

  • You will still be responsible for paying your bills on time – even in the event of a mail disruption. Please don’t mail us payment for your account. To avoid late payment charges, consider one of the following options:
    • Bills can be paid online, by telephone, or in-person at most financial institutions.
    • The Customer Service Office, located at City Hall, 200 McIntyre St. E., also provides in-person counter service for residents. They are open Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
    • Sign up for Paperless Water Billing. This service will provide residents with an electronic copy of their water bill, the due date and any balance past due.  To sign up for this service visit and click on “eServices Portal”.
  • The City’s Planning Services Department will continue to process applications in accordance with the legislative requirements of the Ontario Planning Act, c.P.13, R.S.O 1990. Notices of planning applications being heard by the Planning Advisory Committee will be advertised in the North Bay Nugget and posted on the City’s website. Notices of applications heard by Committee of Adjustment will also be advertised in the Nugget and posted on the City’s website.

In the event that the labour disruption lasts longer than anticipated, the City of North Bay will notify residents of when and how they will receive their monthly water utility bill.
