Being a bylaw to impose sprinkling regulations within the boundaries of the Village of Fraser Lake

WHEREAS it is deemed advisable to decrease our water consumption in order to ensure that water resources are maintained for future generations and create less pollution. Less water usage coming from our lakes and streams will result in better health for our aquatic environments, and less water taken from the lake results in less waste water deposited back into the lake. These measures result in a cleaner, more natural habitat for our fish and waterfowl. 

AND WHEREAS and abundance of water used and discarded back into the system creates additional usage of energy to pump the water from the lake, run the purification process, treat the waste water produced and deposit the treated waste water back into the lake. Less energy means less air pollution from power plants.

NOW THEREFORE, the Council of the Village of Fraser Lake in open meeting assembled enacts as follows:

  1. That the Village of Fraser Lake impose the following sprinkling regulations
  • Watering of trees, shrubs, flowers, or vegetable gardens and lawns using a hose-connected or an automated in-ground sprinkler will  be limited to the hours of 4:00 AM to 9:00 AM or 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM on odd numbered days (1st, 3rd, 5th etc. of each month) for odd numbered property addresses (415 Tunasa, 383 Carrier, etc)
  • Watering of trees, shrubs, flowers, or vegetable gardens and lawns using a hose-connected or an automated in-ground sprinkler will be limited to the hours of 4:00 AM to 9:00 AM or 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM on even numbered days (2nd, 4th, 6th, etc of each month) for even numbered property addresses (420 Tunasa, 382 Carrier, etc)

      2. These sprinkling restrictions shall be effect from May 1st of each year to September 30th of each year.

      3. Upon adoption of this bylaw by the Council of the Village of Fraser Lake, Bylaw No. 669, 2007 will be rescinded in its entirety.

      4. This Bylaw shall be cited as the "Village of Fraser Lake Sprinkling Regulation Bylaw No. 707, 2009".

Property tax notices were sent out, and are due July 2, 2015. 

Please check the top right hand section of your tax notice in the area marked "MORTGAGE COMPANY".  If there is a name in that section (CIBC, Royal Bank, etc), then a copy of the notice has been sent to that mortgage company.  If there is no name in that section and you think your mortgage company is paying your taxes for you, you should contact your mortgage company as a copy of the notice has not been sent to them directly by the Village Office.


Regardless of whether you are paying your taxes personally or your mortgage company is paying your taxes on your behalf, you still need to attend the Village Office to claim your Home Owner’s Grant.


The tax due date is Thursday, July 2, 2015.  Payment must be received in the Village Office by 4:00 pm on that date.


All current unpaid taxes, including Home Owner Grant portions, will be assessed a 10% late payment penalty after 4:00 pm on Thursday, July 2, 2015


There is interest accruing on all taxes in arrears and delinquent at the rate of 6.0% per annum from January 1, 2015 to the date of payment.  This amount is due in addition to the total shown on your tax notice.  This interest rate is set by the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development.


All delinquent tax amounts and their applicable interest must be paid in full by 10:00 am on Monday, September 28, 2015 or the property must be sold for tax sale at that time.


Please read the back sections of your tax notice to see if you qualify for a Home Owner Grant.  Home Owner Grants must be claimed yearly.


Village Office hours are Monday to Friday from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm exclusive of statutory holidays.


We will be closed on Wednesday, July 1, 2015 in celebration of the Canada Day Statutory Holiday.


We do accept cheques post-dated to July 2, 2015 for payment of taxes which means you can claim your Home Owner Grant early and submit a cheque to the Village of Fraser Lake dated for July 2, 2015 so that you do not miss the deadline date.


Post marks on mailed remittances will not be considered as date of payment.  The date your payment is processed at the Village of Fraser Lake Office is the date the payment is received.



If you have any questions please call the Village Office at 250-699-6257.  We are happy to assist where we can.
