Yes, customers should still pay their utility bills during the COVID-19 pandemic. The City encourages everyone to pay their bills online, by phone, by mail, or use the utility drop box located outside City Hall on the traffic island.

In accordance with the final extension of Proclamation 20-23, pertaining to Utility Ratepayer Assistance and Preservation of Essential Services, the Governor’s moratorium on late fees, interest, and shut-offs expired September 30, 2021. For past-due customers who do not establish a payment plan by December 31, 2021, the City will proceed with its normal collection and disconnection procedures, effective January 1, 2022. Should your service be disconnected, payment of all past-due charges and fees will be required to re-establish service.
To avoid collection activity and ensure continued service, we urge you to pay your past-due balance now. If you are unable to pay your past-due balance due to a financial impact or hardship as a result of COVID-19, please contact our office to arrange a flexible payment plan. If you do not set-up a payment plan by December 31, 2021, you must pay the entire past-due amount on your bill to avoid assessing late fees and being disconnected.
