Start of Service / Final Billing

Notification is required upon transferring responsibility of service to property.  Your account may contain charges for water, sewer or stormwater, depending upon your service location.


Property Owners are responsible

Billing transfer to the tenant or occupant is for the convenience of the property owner.  This transfer does not relieve the owner of responsibility for payment should the tenant/occupant of the service address fail to pay for their charges.  Collection of outstanding charges for vacated tenants is the responsibility of the owner.  The owner of record will be a mailed a duplicate delinquent notice should the account become past due. All charges remain against the property.  Failure to pay may result in discontinuation of service and/or a lien on the property.


Discontinuing Water Service

Water service may be discontinued, and charges suspended, upon completion of Owner Lock Off Request Form.  No water and sewer charges will accrue as long as water remains off.  Storm drainage charges (if applicable) are ongoing and will not be discontinued with water/sewer turn off.  There is a $25.00 turn off fee for this service.


Automatic Payments

Utility payments may be withdrawn automatically from your Checking Account.  Please mail or return completed form to initiate either payment option.
