Utility billing procedures
Utility meters are read from the 1st to the 15th of each month. Bills are prepared and mailed the last day of the month. You should receive your bill by the first of the following month. Bills are then payable and due by the 15th of the month. Should the 15th fall on a weekend or holiday when City Hall is closed, the customer may have until the first following working day to pay the bill without penalty. A $10 penalty will be added if the bill is paid after the 15th. If the bill is not paid by the 20th, the service is subject to shut-off. If shut-off occurs because of nonpayment, there will be a $15 reconnect fee for first time delinquencies, $20 for second time and $30 for third time. Full payment of all charges must be collected before services are restored.
