Please be advised that when making payments online to the Municipality, please do not make payments on the due date.  It may take up to 3-5 business days for the payment to reach the office. Payments are only applied when the Municipal Office receives confirmation from the banking institution during regular business hours.  Although your payment leaves your bank account immediately, the office does not receive notification immediately.  Interest is applied to all accounts the first day of each month.

If you encounter any road problems please notify your Councillor or contact the Municipal Office.

Municipality of Lorne residents please keep in mind when clearing snow from yards, snow is NOT to be pushed across municipal roads. Snow gets left behind, which results in ridges being left and freezing on the road.  This becomes hazardous to vehicles and snow removal equipment.

Council appreciates your cooperation in this matter.
