Methods of Payment
- On-line Electronic Bill Payment
- On-line Credit Card Payments through third-party "Plastiq"
Electronic bill payment service through your bank or home computer is now available to our ratepayers to remit payment for taxes and the water/sewer utility.
We do recommend that you contact your bank for assistance in setting up the service to ensure that your on-line payment is applied to the appropriate account correctly. Please make your payment a minimum of 3 days prior to any deadline - your payment is receipted in our office when our bank actually receives the payment.
The Municipality will have two customer accounts; the first will be set up for TAXES only and the second for UTILITY only.
Credit card payments are accepted through our website only through a third-party called "Plastiq". You need to click on the "Pay Now" icon on the right hand side of the home page of our website and create an account with Plastiq. Once you have an account set up, you may pay your taxes, utility or other invoices with a credit card. Payments may take 3-5 business days to process. A Plastiq service fee will be applied (2.5% for credit cards, 1% for debit cards). We cannot accept credit card payments over the phone.

Discharging Fireworks on Private Property
Discharging Fireworks on Private Property
The RM of Edenwold No. 158 does not have a restriction about discharging Low Hazard fireworks (High Hazard fireworks are NOT allowed) on private property in residential subdivisions or rural areas, although we do have a Fire Ban Bylaw that states if a fire ban is issued (by resolution of Council), then fireworks will be restricted during that time frame. We recommend you check our website, www.rmedenwold.ca prior to discharging fireworks to ensure there is no fire ban issued.
- Low Hazard Fireworks are allowed (High Hazard Fireworks are NOT allowed).
- Purchase your fireworks from a reliable source and follow the manufacturers’ instructions.
- Never experiment or make your own fireworks and stay away from illegal explosives.
- Only discharge fireworks in a clear area with no overhead obstructions and at a safe distance from spectators. You're responsible for any debris that may land on your spectators or another property.
- Make sure it isn't windy when you're ready to discharge the fireworks.
- Wait at least 30-minutes before cleaning up. Dispose of fireworks and debris in a pail of water.
- Never attempt to re-light or fix the fuse of fireworks that didn't go off.
- Always keep a bucket of water or a garden hose nearby for emergencies.
