Utility Billing Changes Coming in 2015

Beginning in 2015, there will be some changes to your utility bills. First, the City will be changing to one billing cycle, which means everyone in the City will get a bill near the beginning of February, April, June, August, October, and December. These bills will now be due 30 days after being generated, or near the end of the same month. Additionally, your utility bill format will be changed to be a regular 8.5 x 11 letter. This larger format will allow the utility bill to contain more information and be more reader-friendly.

Other significant changes include eliminating interest charges on bills as well as the elimination of the Pool Fill Credit Program. For those residents who currently participate in the Pool Fill Credit Program, the City will offer an area maintenance meter to those residents at 50% of the City’s cost for the meter. Be sure to call City Hall to take advantage of this offer as it will only be offered in 2015.

Finally, the newly-created Pipe Repair Program will offer relief to customers who have experienced a significant water leak where the water did not exit the property via the City’s sewer system. Please contact City Hall for more details regarding this program  at 586-757-6800.
