Paying your water and electricity bills in Pearl Lagoon

Electricity statement
It is surprising how quickly time passes here in Pearl Lagoon and with the passage of time comes our utility statements - water and lights. Considering how small Pearl Lagoon is we were surprised at how long it takes to receive the statements because the ones we received actually were payable by the previous tenant - so check the dates very carefully. Since we know the previous tenant it was easy for us to get the money that was owing for the bills however, make sure that you are clear with your landlord that you are only responsible for the electricity and water that you consume.

So - where do you pay your electricity bill?  Surprisingly, there is no signage to indicate where the office is located. By asking around we found out that the office is located in a house on the Main Street (the one that the bus comes in on) one block north of the Moravian Church. The house is currently painted pink and if you look at the picture carefully you will see that there are some notices posted on the wall outside.

It is easier to find out where to pay for your water bill since it is owing to the Municipality. They have an office on Front Street (the street where the municipal wharf is located). It is also located one block north of the Moravian Church.
