Unpaid water or sewer bills, as of October 15th, will be re-levied to the following property tax bill.

Please take note that payments are deemed timely or late based on the postmark that appears on the payment envelope. A postmark dated the due date or earlier is acceptable as timely. An envelope received beyond the due date with no postmark or a postmark beyond the due date will result in a penalty. Not all envelopes receive postmarks. Bulk mail, such as on-line payments from banks, metered mail, and mail processed by USPS equipment that does not carry a postmark. The only way to ensure timely payments through the mail is to bring your envelope to the Post Office on time to have it hand postmarked. Please check the envelope to ensure the postmark is legible. Postal clerks often postmark over a stamp making the postmark illegible.

We do not accept postdated checks.  We are required by law to deposit all payments received within 24 hours.  Our bank will not accept a postdated check for deposit. You will be contacted by the telephone number you provided with your payment and asked to come in and correct the date of your check.  If we are unable to reach you, your postdated check will be returned to you by regular mail.
