What You Need to Know About Delinquent Utility Bills
Residents receive their utility bills monthly.
Bills are always due on the 1st of the month.
Past due amounts automatically roll onto the next month's bill, with a late fee, as a beginning balance.
The late fee is 5% of the total bill.
In September, delinquent accounts with a balance of $75 or more are sent a notice of public hearing.
If left unpaid, past due amounts of $75 or more are certified to the property taxes by the end of November, including 6% interest calculated from the public hearing date and a $75 assessment processing charge.
