Important Billing Information
Due Date: All current bills are due by the due date listed on the front of your utility bill. If the bill is not paid by the due date listed on the front of the bill an automatic 10% late charge will be added to the past due balance and the total balance becomes due and payable. If a past due amount is shown on the bill, the full amount due must be paid or service will be disconnected without further notice. Additional charges will apply for restoration of service and any other costs incurred.
Schedule of fees (after due date):
- 1st day: past due amount plus current amount must be paid in full.
- 2nd day: balance in full plus a $10.00 service charge must be paid.
- Day of cut off: balance in full plus a $20.00 service charge must be paid.
