All meters are read electronically and utility bills are mailed on the last day of the month. A penalty is assessed on the 17th (or the next business day). A late notice, with the penalty included, is mailed on the 17th to all outstanding accounts. This notice serves as a cut-off notice and must be paid by the end of the month to avoid service disconnection.
