Our tenants didn't pay their water bill. Can you help us out?
Water and Sewer services provided to the house are the responsibility of the homeowners whether they occupy or rent to someone else. Any water and sewer bills that are over 90 days delinquent as of October 1st of each year are placed on the winter tax bill for collection. We suggest that owners check the status of these accounts prior to the delinquent date.
Can I make automatic payments?
