If a bill is not paid by the due date, a 10% penalty is placed on the last billed amount. For example, you could have a total balance due of $1,000, but your last bill was only $35.18. If this goes unpaid, your penalty would be $3.52.
Each year we review the delinquent water accounts on the 1st of October. Any delinquent amount would need to be paid by the 1st of April otherwise it is in jeopardy of being placed on the taxes for the home or business.
