The Town of White Lake has established a cycle for reading of meters, preparation and mailing of the bills and times at which the billing is due and payable to the Town, and at which late charges and penalties shall be assessed.
(A) All bills for water and sewer utility service furnished by the town shall be due and payable when issued. This will generally be the first day of the month except when that date falls on a weekend or holiday. Bills become delinquent if not received in Town Hall by 5:00 p.m. on the fifteenth (15th) day of the month and a late fee shall be applied on the fifteenth (15th) day at close of business. If the fifteenth day falls on Saturday, Sunday, or a legal holiday observed by the town, then the billing shall be due and payable on the next business day. Notice of the due date and the penalty for non-payment by the due date shall be provided to the account holder either by mail notice or shall be printed on the face of the bill.
(B) If any bill remains unpaid on the last day of the month, service shall be discontinued. No second notices shall be sent.
(C) Failure to receive bills or notices does not prevent such bills from becoming delinquent, nor relieve the account holder from payment.
(D) Any account holder with a delinquent account may not open a new account at another location until the delinquent account has been satisfied. If the amount in arrears is significant, a payment plan may be established. Failure to honor the terms of the payment plan and/or failure to keep the new account current will result in termination of service.
