Payments for Water/Sewer Bills are received by:
Toni Murphy, Receiver of Taxes
Please include the bottom portion of your bill with payment and include your Customer # on your check. Payments may also be made in person with cash or check at the Receiver of Taxes Office. The Receiver of Taxes does not receive payments by phone or with a credit card. Bills are due within 30 days of the Bill Date.
Delinquent Water/Sewer Bills:
A 1 time 10% Penalty per billing is applied if paid after the Due Date.
Please Note: ALL ACCOUNT BALANCES STAY WITH THE PROPERTY. Any unpaid Water/Sewer Account Balance not paid by September 30th of each year will be relevied to the January Property Tax Bill. This will show up on the Property Tax Bill as “Return Water” / “Return Sewer”.
The property owner, as the customer, is responsible for notifying the Water & Sewer Department of any changes in your Account Status. If you are planning to move, please contact our office within five (5) business day of your planned move.
If you have a question regarding your bill, you must contact our office with your billing questions at least fifteen (15) days before the DUE DATE on your bill so that any billing changes can be made before a penalty is assessed.
If our Water Department is not getting a proper reading from our Radio Meter Reading Device or if it appears that the Meter Reading is “stuck” we will send a repair notice with your bill. You must contact our office so that we can set up an appointment with our Water Department to make any necessary inside repairs to your meter and get an accurate reading.
Every spring and fall the town flushes the water mains to remove sediment build up. Schedules of this flushing are on the Town’s Website and printed in The Advertiser. Please watch for these notices so you can be prepared at your home or business for the temporary service interruptions that may occur. Town hydrants are flushed during the latter parts of April and October. For more information please call our Water & Sewer Office at 477-9367or the Department for Public Works at 477-6103.
