A Delinquent Notice is issued if payment has not been received by the due date originally shown on the routine bill. The Delinquent Notice includes penalty and interest charges and will show a new due date – approximately 10-14 days from the original billing due date. If the bill remains unpaid the Administrative Services Department will call to remind you of the amount still due the Friday before the new listed due date. If contact cannot be made, a 48 hour notice will be placed on the front door of the property and a $36.00 fee will be applied to your account. Should the bill still remain unpaid, an $86.00 Shut Off Fee will be added to your account prior to services being locked out at the meter due to non payment.
In order to have services restored on a non business day, an after-hours turn on fee of $199.00 will be added to your utility account. Otherwise, you must wait until the next business day then pay your past due balance plus the $86.00 shut off fee, plus the $36.00 48 hour notice fee – services will then be restored within one to two hours of payment being received.
