Billing Policy

Meters are to be read by the end of the Month (preferably on the last 2 working days of the Month). Water bills are to be mailed by the 5th of each Month and Payment is due by 20th of each Month.

Late Payment fees assessed after the 30th of the Month (at next billing - this is a 10 day grace period). Bills are to the Property Owner or Agent (we will NOT bill tenants).

Late Fees and Penalties (per unit):

  • Interest on Late Payments = 18% APR
  • Late Penalty = $10.00 or 15% (whichever is greater)
  • Water Shut-Off Fee = $25.00
  • Water Service Turn-On Fee = $25.00
  • NSF Fee = $25.00 per check

Example of Payment and Shut-Off Schedule:

Month #1

  • Billed by 5th of the Month
  • Payment due on 20th of the Month
  • Penalties and Interest added on 30th of the Month ($10 plus interest or 15% plus interest)

Month #2

  • Billed by 5th of the Month (Including Outstanding, Penalty and Interest from previous Month)
  • Payment due on 20th of the Month
  • Penalties and Interest added on 30th of the Month ($10 plus interest or 15% plus interest)

Month #3

  • Billed by 5th of the Month (Including 2 previous months outstanding & penalties and Interest)
  • Send Shut-Off Notice with this bill
  • Post Notice on Residence
  • Certified letter
  • Give 10 days to pay the ENTIRE BILL
  • 3 months water usage
  • (2) $10 late fees (or 15%)
  • Interest
  • Shut-Off date usually around 15th of the Month

We do NOT let partial payments terminate Shut-Off Notice (Bill must be paid in FULL). Anyone that has bounced a check, must pay cash or certified check on Shut-Off Notices

Time Example: If someone does not pay their January water bill (water used in December) or February water bill, they will be sent a shut-off notice with their March bill (at that time they owe for water used in December, January and February).
