Below are some of the most common questions we hear from our citizens.
- Home Insurance:
We advise everyone to make sure that they have the appropriate Fire Fighting Insurance, we recommend that you have at least $10,000.00 firefighting coverage. The average firefighting costs can range from $1,200.00 to upwards of $10,000.00. Contact your local insurance broker for more information.
- Utility Bills:
Utility bills are monthly. Currently, you can pay your utilities online (except through Royal Bank), via e-transfer, cheque or cash. Credit and Debit cards are not accepted. Cheques can be made out to the Town of Grand Coulee. If you wish, you can slide the cheques through the door slot at the office if it is closed. Please do not put cash through the slot. Actual water readings occur quarterly. If you wish to have an actual reading each month, please email your reading to email@example.com by the 29th of the month.
- Dog Licenses:
Dog licenses can be acquired at the town office free of charge. Only dogs that are not already tattooed or microchipped require a free tag.
You will need to contact Canada Post to set up a Box Number. Grand Coulee’s postal code is actually a Regina postal code, but the mail is delivered out here. The information that might assist you when phoning them is: GBS#200, Box ***, RR#2, S4P 2Z2. Good Luck!!! Just so you know that you are not alone, many people have had difficulties, persistence is needed. Once you have set up a Box #, please contact the office to update your mailing address. This issue will be resolved in the near future as Grand Coulee works with Canada Post to get our own postal code, our own identity. Once completed it will be easier to sign up for a mailbox, easier to have deliveries made to your home, easier to verify your physical address, etc.
