Due Dates for Utility Bills and Property Taxes
Utility bills are due on the 20th day of every month unless that date falls on a weekend or holiday, then it is the next business day. The "net amount" is the amount you pay on or before the due date. The "gross amount" includes the late fee, which is applied the day after the due date.
Property taxes are due by December 31st every year.
Payment By Mail for Utility Bills and Property Taxes
If paying by check or money order through the mail, please send all payments with your payment coupon. PLEASE NOTE that utility bills and property taxes CANNOT be paid with one check or money order. A separate check or money order is needed to process as these monies go into two separate accounts. To avoid late fees, please mail your payment at least five-seven business days before the due date specified on your bill.
Payment Drop-off Location
You may pay your bill in person by coming into the lobby, at our drive-thru window, or at our drop box located at the entrance of the Town Hall. We accept cash, check, or money orders. Please DO NOT place cash in the drop box and we encourage everyone to pay with check or money order. To avoid longer wait times, please note that Mondays, Fridays, the due date, and the first day after a holiday are normally very busy.
Payment Through Financial Institution Online Bill Pay
Many financial institutions such as major banks offer their customers the ability to pay their bills via an online bill payment service (through your bank's website). Normally, these services debit the customer's checking or savings account to pay the bill. Depending on the financial institution, they may or may not charge a fee for the service. Payments may take up to seven business days to post to the customer's account. Please consult with your bank for more information.
