Penalties and Water Termination

Late Payments
Payments are due approximately a week after bills go out. Please view the Service Guide to see when payments are due, delinquency dates, and water termination dates. A fee of $5 or 10%, whichever is greater, will be added to late accounts.

Water Termination

Once water has been shut off, there will be a re-connection charge of $40.00 added to the account. Only City personnel are authorized to shut off and re-start water service. Any damage caused by unauthorized tampering will be subject to other fees. Any unauthorized water restarts will be charged an additional $35 fee. Attention: If your service is disconnected 3 or more times during a 12 month period, you will be required to post an additional deposit—(total deposit on account to equal $400). If payment is made after business hours (8am-5pm) water will be reconnected on the next business day.
