Billing

A monthly bill will arrive around the 1st of each month and must be paid by 5:00 p.m. on the 15th of each month or on the first business day following the 15th of the month should that date fall on a Saturday, Sunday, or city holiday to avoid penalty charges.

 

Penalty Charge

The penalty on gas is 10% of the charge, and all remaining services have a 5% penalty.  

 

Delinquent Notices

Delinquent notices are mailed after the 15th.  Landlords will receive duplicate notices of delinquency.  Payment must be received by 5:00 p.m. on the 23rd (or first business day after) of the month to avoid termination of services.  In the event of an emergency, a payment agreement can be written.  All agreements must be signed at City Hall on or before the 22nd of each month.  The full policy can be found at the bottom of this page. 

   

Reconnection of Services

Subsequent disconnects are charged as follows:

①  First reconnect - $25

② Second reconnect within 12 months - $50

③ Third & all subsequent reconnects within a 12 month period - $75

***The fees described above are in effect until the customer has not been assessed this fee for 12 consecutive months.

Landlords will be notified of all disconnects

**Fees shall be assessed to all accounts regardless of whether services were physically disconnected or terminated at the meter.

 

Utility Level-Pay Plan

May is sign-up month.  The levelized amount is determined by averaging the customer's last 12 months' utility bills.  The months to be averaged are:  January through May of the current year and June through December of the prior year.  The level pay amount is valid for 11 months and every May the account is balanced and re-averaged for the next plan year.  Details and sign-up forms are available at City Hall.
