BILLING AND DUE DATES

Meters are read around the 15th of each month.  The period of service is noted your bill, along with the usage.

All bills are due the 5th of the month; however, if the 5th falls on a weekend or legal holiday, by close of business the first day following.  Billing is done so bills are mailed the 22nd day of the month.

Disconnect Notices are sent about the 6th of the month.  Water service will be disconnected (cutoff) if payment is not received by close of business the 14th of the month.

DISCONNECTION FOR NONPAYMENT

In the event bills for services are not paid by close of business the 14th of the month (or the first business day following should the 14th fall on the weekend or a legal holiday), service will be disconnected (cutoff). The customer will need to pay a $40.00 service charge plus the past due bill in full to get service reconnected.

Customers are NOT to reconnect the water service themselves. If a customer is found to be doing this without paying the bill, a lock will be placed on the meter. Once the meter has been locked, an additional $40.00 service fee will be added to the bill.
