Water Billing

Water Meters are read on April 1st and October 1st of every year. Bills are mailed May 1st and November 1st. Payment is expected within 30 days of the billing date. Interest accrues at the rate of 1% per month on the outstanding balance. Failure to pay in a timely manner could result in water disconnection. There is a $100 cash reconnection fee during business hours; THERE IS NO AFTER HOURS RECONNECTION.

If you have a question about your water bill, there are several things you should consider before calling the Town Office.

  • If there is a significant increase, you could have a leak.
  • Keep past bills so you can compare your usage from billing period to billing period.
  • Have your account number ready.
  • Your November bill will probably be higher than the one you received in May because it covers the summer months when water usage increases.

If you have difficulty paying your bill, please call the Town Office immediately to set up a payment plan. We will work out a payment schedule with you. You are subject to disconnection if your bill is not paid by the due date (i.e. bill dated 5/1 is due 6/1, bill dated 11/1 is due 12/1).
