In response to a potential strike by the Canadian Union of Postal Workers, the City of Brooks would like to inform residents and rate payers of alternatives available for receiving bills and submitting payments. 

For Utility Bills (water, sewer, recycling and garbage), the next scheduled mail out of bills will be June 15th for the east side of the community.  In a situation where postal workers are still on strike, utility bills may not be delivered as usual.  If this situation
occurs, residents are encouraged to utilize one of the following two options to attain their balance due:
1. Call City Hall (403-362-3333) during regular business hours; or
2. Visit Virtual City Hall, which is available via the City’s website ( 
To access Virtual City Hall, you must obtain an access code which is available through City Hall.
For Bulk Water Billings, the next scheduled mail out of bills will be June 10th.  Bulk water users can obtain their balance by calling City Hall during regular business hours.
For Property Tax Notices, all of the notices have already been mailed out.  However, for those who prefer to submit their payment via the mail, their payments may be received late and unnecessary penalties could be applied.  The following payment alternatives are available and residents are strongly encouraged to utilize these options:
1. Payment (cash, cheque, money order or debit) received at City Hall (201-1st Avenue West) during regular business hours;
2. Payment dropped off in the after-hours drop box located at the front entrance of City Hall, at the east side;
3. Through internet banking;
4. Through telephone banking; or
5. At most financial institutions.
For more information about alternatives available for checking balances or paying bills, please contact:
