Fees and Penalties

The following fees and penalties may be incurred for services or on your utility account. 

utility deposit

When application is made by a non-property owner for water service to be provided by the City, a deposit of $200.00 is required at the time the application is submitted. The deposit of $200.00 will be applied to the final water bill with any remaining balance refunded. If the occupant has a prior outstanding balance with the City from a previous residence, service cannot be placed in their name until the outstanding balance has been paid in full.  

late fee

Utility bills are due on the 18th of every month.  Failure to pay the utility bill by the 18th results in a 10% penalty for the unpaid amount of the bill for the current billing period.  

returned check fees

Payments returned by the bank, regardless of the reason, will be applied back to the account, a $30 returned payment fee will be incurred, and a notification letter will be sent. The returned payment is immediately considered past due and will be eligible for disconnect in the next shut off process.
