Water meters are read around the 20th day of each month. Water, sewer and refuse bills are mailed out within the first week of each month. All bills are to be paid on or before the 20th day following the billing date (if the due date falls on a Saturday, Sunday or a holiday observed by the Town, a grace period is allowed through the next business day).
If payment is not received within 20 days of the billing date, a total penalty shall be added to the bill equal to $10.00 or 10% of the amount of the bill, whichever is greater. This penalty is $2.50 or 10% for each water & sewer and $5.00 or 10% for refuse.
If either the bill or penalty shall remain unpaid on the 50th day after the billing date, notices will be sent informing that water service will be disconnected in 30 days. Service shall be reinstated upon full payment of the current balance plus a $25.00 reconnection fee. Water meters are not to be turned on or off except by authority of the Town Superintendent.
