Automatic Payment from Checking Account (AutoPay)
To provide additional convenience to our customers, the City is offering an automatic bank debit service to utility billing customers.  The City will be able to process an automatic deduction from your checking account 2 business days before the bill is due.  You will continue to receive paper bills to know when and how much will be debited from your account.  To sign up for this service, simply complete the AutoPay form and send it in with a copy or voided check.  Please keep in mind it takes 2 billing cycles for the first draft to occur.  Once enrolled, it is your responsibility to contact customer service in writing of any changes or cancellations to your bank account.

Due Date and Penalties – Current charges are due and payable immediately.  The current charges become delinquent 21 days from the mailing date.  If not paid within this period, a 10% penalty will be applied.  If after 15 days payment is still not received, a shut off notice may be delivered and the service may be interrupted.  If your utilities have been disconnected for non-payment, in order to have your utilities reinstated, you must bring your account current by making a payment that includes any penalties, plus service and reconnection fees. If you feel there has been an error in your account, please call Customer Service at 388-5325.

Water Meter Readings - Water meters are read monthly and billed in hundred cubic feet (HCF).  You may access your water meter anytime to check how much water you’re using and whether you have a leak.  Most water meters are located in front of your home or business underneath a concrete or metal lid.  All the digits before the decimal are used as part of the reading.  To know how much water was used take the reading from the meter and subtract the reading from your most current bill.  To check if you have a leak, make sure the water is turned off inside and outside of property and then go to the meter.  None of the dials should be moving.  If a dial is moving then water is flowing and you may have a leak.  For emergency repairs: contact the water department during normal business hours at (805) 388-5373 or after hours at (805) 388-5325.
