Delinquent Water & Sewage Account Policy Amended

The Municipal Authority and Sewage Authority have amended their Delinquent Account Policy to eliminate the sending of Late Notices. Delinquent water and sewage charges are included on the bill card sent monthly to each account.  Therefore, the sending of Late Notices was a duplicate effort.

 

Prior to service termination, delinquent accounts will continue to receive a certified mail Shut-Off Notice providing an opportunity to pay the amount in arrears. A Shut-Off Notice will be posted on the property just prior to service termination. Fees for delinquent collections will be added to the customer account and remain as follows:

 

Certified Mailing – $15.00

Delinquent Posting – $10.00

Delinquent Water Turn-Off – $20.00

Delinquent Water Turn-On – $20.00

 

The Municipal and Sewage Authorities have options for prompt and quick payments of your water and sewage charges to help you avoid late fees or penalties that can occur as a result of delays that can occur with mail service. Visit the Water Sewage Authorities Page to review the options available.
