Past Due Charges & Shut-Off Procedures
A 10% Penalty will be applied to water, sewer and recycling charges when payment has not been received by 5:00 p.m. on the due date. Service will be discontinued if the bill remains unpaid for more than 30 days after the due date shown on the statement. Service will not be resumed until all arrears plus an additional charge of $25.00 have been paid. A $75.00 charge applies if water is turned on after hours. The City assumes no responsibility for what may happen on the premises as a result of the water being turned off.
High Water Bill
In most instances, higher than normal water usage is caused by undetected leaks in the flush tank of the toilets, as these are not visible to the homeowner. We suggest you check your flush tanks periodically. File a service request: "Why is my water bill so high?"
