Bills are always due on the 10th of each month. If a bill is not paid by the 10th of each month, the account becomes delinquent.
- In the event that the 10th of the month falls on a Saturday, Sunday or holiday, payments will be accepted until 5 PM on the next business day and will not be considered delinquent.
- Any payments left in the night deposite box after 5 PM on the 10th will be subject to late fees.
- A cut-off notice will then be generated and mailed after the 10th, indicating the cut-off day. The cutoff day each month is scheduled for the 23rd unless the 23rd falls on a Friday, Saturday, Sunday, or on or the day preceeding a holiday, then cutoff day will be moved to the business day.
- If payment in full has not been received in the office by 7:00 AM on cuttoff morning, your account will be placed on the cutoff list.
- Once the technician arrives at your location and physically locks your meter, a $ 50 Administrative Reset Fee will be added to the account. This fee is the expense of two service calls to lock and unlock the account.
- The meter will be locked and services will not be restored until both the delinquent bill and $50 fee is paid.
- NSF or returned check charge is $ 35.00.
