Utility Bills

Water and sewer payments are due in full on the 15th day of each month.


After the 20th, a late fee is added to any account with an outstanding balance.


Bills which still remain unpaid after the 25th are subject to disconnection of water.


Once a service is disconnected for non-payment, a reconnection fee plus the total amount owed is due and must be paid in full in order to have the service restored.
