Budget Billing

The City offers budget billing for our customers ease in paying their utility bill.  Budget billing is not a discount program; it offers no savings or lower rates.  The total annual cost for utilities remains the same, but the customers have the convenience of a more predictable bill each month.  Participation in the program is free and offered to all customers who have had service with the City for at least 6 months.  Budget Billing is calculated by taking the customers usage and cost over the previous 12 months, and dividing it by 12.  An average monthly cost is then determined by multiplying that amount by a factor that takes into account projected utility prices.

Once enrolled in Budget Billing, your account will be reviewed quarterly.  The budget bill may stay the same each time, or may change 4 times a year.  

The customer may discontinue Budget Billing at any time by submitting a written notice.  Any existing credit will be refunded to the customer's active account immediately and will be due in full with the next bill.  The City may terminate Budget Billing should the account become past due and proceed with collection actions.
