Delinquent Policy

Unpaid current charges become delinquent after the due date of the 5th and are subject to a 10% late fee.

Accounts that are delinquent over 90 days will receive a Delinquent Notice and a $25.00 fee is added to the account.  If no payment is received after 10 days of the issuance of the notice, a door hanger will be placed. The door hanger will be giving notice that the water service will be shut off in 3 days unless the delinquent amount is paid.

If the water service is shut off the entire account balance must be paid in full to restore water service. A $50.00 shut off fee and $50.00 turn on fee will be added to the account.
