**We will be waiving the late charges on the water bills one more time this year due to Covid19. The late fees will pick back up if your January 2021 water bill is not paid by the due date.
**For those of our residents who utilize online bill paying THROUGH THEIR BANK, please make sure that you include the proper ACCOUNT NUMBER on the check for your water bill payment. Your water account number is your ADDRESS at which the service is provided. Your tax account number is your PARCEL ID.
This is very important to assure that your payments are being posted to the correct account.
**When writing a check please refrain from using RED INK. The bank frowns on this. It is very hard to read copies.
**When writing your checks, please do NOT POST DATE your check. You can always pay us at a later date.
**When paying ONLINE BY DEBIT/CREDIT, please enter your account number or full address on the first page where it says account information.
