Late Payment Fee

If a payment is missed, the utility office will mail a reminder letter. If payment has not been received twelve days later the city will post a door tag on the account holder's door as a final reminder. At this point, a fee is assessed for posting the door tag. After the door tag is placed, the occupants have 24 hours to pay the past due balance on their account or make arrangements to do so with the Utilities Department Personnel.
