Bills are issued quarterly for water / sewer service. They are due on the dates scheduled above. A late payment charge of 1% per month will be added to bills not paid within 20 days of issuance. This late payment charge will be applied to the total unpaid balance for the utility service, including unpaid late payment charges. Failure to receive a quarterly bill or absence from the city on due date will not serve as a claim to waive the late payment charge.

Any remaining outstanding balances through September 1 of each year will be placed on the property tax bill. A 10% penalty is added to the arrearage. The outstanding portion of your account that will go to the tax bill includes the third and fourth quarters of the previous year and the first and second quarters of the current year plus any interest. You will have until November 1 each year to clear your account to avoid the added penalty.


For your convenience, you may arrange to pay your utility bill via ACH transfer. This is a direct payment authorized by you from your checking or savings account to the water and sewer department on the due date each quarter.
