The City reads its utility meters on the third week of each month, and bills for utilities on the last week of each month based on actual usage.

The City offers an Automatic Payment Plan through and ACH process. The utility customer still receives a monthly billing so that the amount to be deducted is communicated to the customer. The City also offers an Equal Payment billing. The Equal Payment billing is an amount equal to one eleventh of the estimated annual billing. The twelfth month is a reconciling month which either bills an amount owed from under billing during the year or a credit which is the amount over billed during the year.
