Past Due Utility Payments

Utility accounts that have a past due balance will be assessed a late fee in the amount of $7.50 per EDU/per Quarterly Billing.  Late fees will appear on the next quarterly bill following the late occurrence.  Late fees are used to recover administrative costs incurred as a result of late payments and fund the District's Low-income Lifeline (LIL) Program.

Example for a single-family residential property (1 EDU):

  Previous Balance= $108.00

+ Late Fees= $7.50 (assessed by quarter $2.50 x 3 months)

   -> Past Due Amount= $115.50

+ Current Sewer Charge = $108.00

  -> Amount Due = $223.50
