Notice to the Landlords - Your responsibility

Notice to Landlords

We would like to remind everyone that as per Town of Faro Water and Sewer Bylaw 92-30, Section 906, the registered owner of the property shall be liable for all charges and fees with respect to that property.

If your tenant sets up W/S/R account and fails to make the payments, it is your responsibility to pay the charges. We are invoicing quarterly and the invoices are not due until the end of the quarter. Outstanding charges are subject to 10% penalty after 60 days from the due date and at that time we send a late payment notice which will be copied to you. By the time you hear from us, there may be 5 months of charges on the account. We therefore encourage the landlords to make sure their tenant is making the payments or to keep the account in their name and collect the fees from the tenant directly.

Welcome, Nanako!

Download Attachment...


We would like to welcome Nanako from Oosakasayama City, Japan to our beautiful community. She is here under an Exchange Student Program; and is staying with Lorraine and Josh Wilcox as her host family while attending DVG School.

Nanako is a true young adventurer as she has decided to leave a city like Oosakasayama City (Population 58,172 - 4,900 persons per km²) to spend few months here in Faro. We hope that her stay here is a pleasant and memorable one.

On her first day in town, Nanako learned to chop wood like a true Yukoner. She loves art and well….sleeping.  She is already feeling a bit cold…so will need to adjust to the Yukon for sure. She is looking forward to seeing some wildlife and learning to play hockey.

We are confident that this wonderful, warm and loving community will make Nanako feel right at home, so that she will not only forget about the cold, she will actually enjoy her time here.  Have a wonderful stay here Nanako!

Thank you!

While driving through town during past few months, you must have felt like you were in a tropical paradise; with well-maintained lush green spaces and beautiful flower beds all around town. All this was made possible by the hard work of our full time and seasonal adult and student team members in the public works. We would like to thank them all for a job well done!
