SIGN CORRIDOR

Please be advised that the Village of St. Louis has been approved for an advertising sign corridor on the southeast side of the intersection to Provincial Highways # 2 & # 25, travelling north.  Opportunities are now available for local businesses to advertise within the Sign Corridor.  Any business or service club wishing to advertise in this corridor must be located within the municipal limits of the Village of St. Louis or within 10 kms of the Sign Corridor.

 

There is currently space for 20 advertisers at this location and advertising spots will be allocated on a first paid basis.  Permit application will be available from the St. Louis Village Office beginning April 4, 2016.

Each permitted advertiser will be required to provide the Village with a 4’ x 8’ advertising sign constructed of approved material (at their cost).  The Village must give approval of all sign proofs before you have it constructed and installed.

 

There is a $300 installation fee (materials and labour) and an annual advertising fee of $200 (administration, land rental and maintenance).  This is payable to the Village of St. Louis at the time of application.

 

Contact the St. Louis Village Office for more information .

  

 Utility Accounts

St. Louis Village Council is currently reviewing the utility account billing process.  As expenses to the Village are incurred and paid for on a monthly basis and invoice billing only done quarterly, it is imperative that all accounts remain current.  The Village is not in a position to allow utility accounts to remain outstanding past the 20 day due date.

 

Village Council is considering various options to ensure prompt payment of utility accounts, including monthly billing, interest charges on past due accounts, transferring past due charges to tax accounts and disconnection of services, where warranted.

 

Please ensure that your utility account is current to avoid additional charges or service disconnection.  Your prompt payment ensures that no financial strain is placed on the municipality and that required service and maintenance levels can be maintained within the water and wastewater utility.

 

Thank you for your cooperation.

  

 

Street Repairs

Please be advised that local street repairs will be occurring in July of 2017. 

 

Patching repairs will be done in various locations throughout the Village including McKenzie Avenue, South Hill Drive, Milligan Avenue, Riverside Drive and 1st Street

 

There may be barricades in place at various times and work crews present during business hours.  Portions of the work area may be closed on occasion and alternate routes will have to be taken.

 

Please respect all barricades and stay away from work areas until they are open for use.  Thank you.

 

Account Payments

With the closing of Affinity Credit Union on June 30, 2017, the Village will be challenged with maintaining timely deposits of all payments received.

 

In order to reduce the amount of cheques and cash received for payment of tax and utility accounts the Village is exploring options to give our customers payment alternatives to cash and cheque.

 

Currently the Village accepts on-line payments via Affinity Credit Union’s on-line banking platform and is looking at adding other financial institutions as needed.  The Village can receive an e-transfer of funds to our e-mail address: villageofstlouis@sasktel.net for any account payment you wish to make.  Also, the Village is exploring automatic debits from accounts that can be set up monthly or quarterly.

 

In person payments currently include cheque, cash and debit card.  Council has explored options regarding credit card payments and would have to charge a surcharge to accept credit card payments.

 

It is asked that all tax and utility account holders consider payment options that do not require cash or cheque. The preferred option for the Village would be debit payments in person or any on-line method that they have available to them including on-line banking and e-transfers.

 

Thank you for your consideration of using alternative payment methods to cash and cheque and if you have any questions, please contact the Village Office.
