How and When To Pay


Due Date

All bills are due on the 23rd of each month.  If the 23rd falls on a weekend or holiday, the next business day after the 23rd will be the due date.  Payments sent through the mail must be received on or before the due date.  If an account is not paid in full on the due date, a penalty charge will be added to the next month's bill.  We are not responsible for delays with the postal service.  Please make sure you allow enough time to mail your payment approximately 5 - 7 business days.


When are the bills sent out?

The billing statements are sent out the first part of every month. If you have not received a statement by the 10th of the month, call the office. We will be glad to give you the amount or send a new billing statement out.
