In 2020, Council voted to hire Portnoff Law to collect delinquent sewer payments. Amounts totaling $450 or more are now handled by Portnoff Law.

Bills are mailed in March, June, September and December each year.  Rate payers have a 30 day grace period to pay their bill without a late charge.  A table of computations of EDUs follows:
