Late Charge Policy:

Accounts will be assessed a late charge of $5 for each utility service that has not been paid in full with 30 days of the billing date (except for those accounts which have made payment arrangements prior to the 30th day).  Please call and make arrangements if you will have difficulty making the payment - its easy, and cheaper than late and delinquent fees.

A delinquent charge of $5 for each utility service that is not paid in full by the 15th of the month following the first late charge fee.  This fee will be assessed when delinquent letters are mailed and door tags are hung.

A shut-off charge of $10 for water and $10 for sewer will be charged to each utility account that is shut-off for non-payment, seven (7) days after receiving a delinquent notice.  A $10 trash utility disconnection fee may apply under certain circumstances as well.

A $20 fee will be charged for any returned check.  An account will have 24 hours to provide cash in payment for the returned check and fee, or a shut-off will proceed immediately.
