Utility Billing & Accounts Receivable
The Administration & Finance Department, in conjunction with the Public Works Department, provides utility hook-up, disconnection, and billing services. The Town reads meters on a bi-monthly basis for those who do not have Automatic Meter Reading capability. AMR’s are read on a monthly basis.
Bills are normally mailed on the last Monday of the month and are due the third Monday of the following month. A penalty of 4.95% is applied to all overdue accounts.
Upon completion of the Application for Utility Services, tenants shall provide a $150.00 utility deposit before any service hook up and the utility bill will remain in the landlord’s name with a copy being sent to the tenant. All property owners are now required to pay a $50.00 deposit. Reference letters are no longer accepted.
