Some city water bills arriving late

About a third of the city’s 14,000 customers will be receiving their monthly water bill a few days late, and as a result, the bill’s due date also has been pushed back. Instead of Sept. 5, the due date printed on the bill will be Sept. 8. Bank draft customers will still draft on Sept. 5.

The city bills its customers in three cycles, and the only impacted customers are in the third cycle, which would have normally been mailed on Aug. 20, with a due date of Sept. 5. As the bills are going out on Aug. 23, they will have a due date of Sept. 8.
