A bill for utility services will be mailed each month; a billing month consists of approximately 30 days. Utility service(s) are based on the number of kWh and/or gallons used that register through the meter(s) for electric, water and sewer; storm water is a flat rate fee. The bill will be mailed on the last business day of each month. Bills will be due on the fifteenth of the next month; if the due date falls on a weekend or holiday the bills will be due the next business day after the fifteenth. A penalty will be added to any bill that has not been paid by the due date. To avoid a penalty, payments must be received by the end of the business day (3:30 pm EST) on the due date.
