If you haven’t already paid your property taxes, expect to find an additional 10 per cent tacked on to the total.

Like most other bills, the Town of Lake Cowichan’s property taxes payment deadline of 4:30 p.m. Monday, July 4, has not been affected by the postal strike.

Particularly so, since postal service within the town has not been affected.

The issue was discussed briefly during a recent council meeting, during which time councillor Tim McGonigle saw the humour in the situation.

“I got a call from Telus recently telling me that, despite the postal strike my bill is due. So, I told them my cheque was in the mail,” he said.

Unlike McGonigle’s situation with the out-of-town Telus headquarters, postal service within the Cowichan Lake area hasn’t been affected, as its employees operate under a different union.

The 2011 tax notices were mailed out May 13 of this year.

Unpaid utility bills, which were mailed out in January of this year, and are also now overdue.
