The billing statement you receive states the date your payment is due. If the full payment is not received by that date, a late notice will be mailed the next day giving you a 7-day grace period before a late fee is assessed or services are terminated.
The notice states that if full payment or a payment arrangement is not made by 5:00 p.m. before the due date, the services will be terminated. Making a payment arrangement is the best way to ensure your services will not be interrupted if you need more time to make your payment. The wording is not meant to be threatening, but it is stating what will happen if payment or a payment arrangement is not made before the due date. Before any action can be taken, that action must be stated. Per City Ordinance, all bills are due and payable monthly.
The City bills for the actual water used for the previous month. For example, we read your meter on July 25. The consumption is for the period between June 23 and July 25. Your billing statement for that period would be sent on August 15. If you shut your water off any time after July 26, it will not reflect on your billing statement until the statement that is sent on September 15.
We are able to send your billing statements as paperless e-bills.
