City of Lacombe closes all facilities for rest of the week

Residents are encouraged to access services, make payments, in other ways

Lacombe City Hall has temporarily closed, following the Alberta Government’s declaration of a state of public health emergency.

As of Wednesday, all City of Lacombe facilities, including City Hall, will be closed to the public for the remainder of the week.

Residents are encouraged to access city services in other ways.

Taxes and utility bills can be paid online, permits can be processed electronically, and staff can be contacted by phone to make appointments for in-person visits.

Lacombe residents with an online utility account can log in and make a credit card payment over the phone, through online banking, by mailing a cheque, or dropping a cheque in a sealed envelope through the mail slot at City Hall.

Tax payments can be made using the same alternatives.

Please label all envelopes clearly with the account holder’s name, address and account number.

Residents who are moving out of Lacombe can forward cancellation and service agreement forms via fax or email. To access the necessary forms, please visit http://lacombe.ca/living/utility-service-centre.

If anyone requires information or forms regarding utilities, taxes, business licenses or other City services, please email:

• utilities@lacombe.ca

• propertytax@lacombe.ca

• businesslicense@lacombe.ca

The City of Lacombe will be reassessing the situation at the end of the week.
