As a reminder, water bills are due on the 15th of every month. If it goes unpaid, a late bill is generated and delivered by the 19th with notice that services will be disconnected on the 10th day if not paid. The late bill is stamped Past Due in red, it also has a disconnect date on it and the back of the bill explains the process once disconnected. The next month’s bill is delivered within a few days of the late bill and if there is a balance carried over from the prior bill, it will be reflected on the new bill. Keep in mind past due bills must be paid by the end of the month in which it was due to avoid disconnection. If you do not receive a bill, please call City Hall, 692.2743, and we are happy to give you a total amount due.
