Payment arrangements are granted on a case-by-case basis. All payments receieved after the due date will be assessed a 10% late fee. A fee of $25 will be applied for any returned payments made to the City.

Final bills are generated automatically, each month, for all accounts carrying a past  due balance. Failure to pay your bill will result in disconnection of service.
