Notice to Owners of Tenant Occupied Properties
Legislation governing municipalities in the delivery and billing of water and sanitary sewer services changed, effective January 1, 2003. The Town of Midland will be adhering to the legislation when it assumes the water and sewer billing function on July 1, 2005.
The legislation states that the property owner is ultimately responsible for the payment of services supplied to their properties. However, upon written request by the property owner, the Town of Midland will forward a copy of the bill to the tenant, to facilitate payment by the tenant. If the tenant does not pay, the unpaid charges will be added to the property's tax roll AND the water will be disconnected. The original utility bill will continue to be mailed to the property owner as it is the responsibility of the property owner to ensure the water and sewer bills are paid by their tenants.
Please be aware that it is the responsibility of the property owner to make all necessary arrangements with the Town, particularly when there is a change in tenant(s).
If you are a landlord and wish to have a copy of the water and sewer bill sent to your tenant(s), please provide the Town with information outlined in the application provided below and sign the document to acknowledge your understanding of the above terms. Please return the completed and signed form to the Town of Midland Municipal Offices at 575 Dominion Avenue.
WATER AND SEWER BILLS WILL NOT BE MAILED TO THE TENANT(S)UNLESS THE PROPERTY OWNER HAS SUBMITTED AN APPLICATION.
Personal information contained on the forms provided is collected under the authority of the Municipal Act, S.O. 2001, c.25, s. 398 and will be used in the delivery and billing of water and sanitary sewer services and will be treated as confidential. Questions regarding this collection of information should be directed to the Treasurer of the Town of Midland.
Responsibility for Water Consumption
Property owners are reminded that all water that passes through their water meter is their responsibility. Be aware of leaks, running toilets and open faucets. Over an extended time, the cost of wasted water can add up.
What if Your Water Usage is Higher than Normal?
Turn off all water you are using, including appliances.
Look at your meter to see if any of the dials are turning.
If any indicator is turning, you have a leak. Most leaks are due to
leaky toilets which we call “the silent leak” because they are difficult to detect.
Other places to look for leaks
other appliances that are close to a drain where the leaking water could go unnoticed
