Delivery of bills

Similar to taxes, failure to receive a utility bill does not relieve the homeowner from paying utilities or delinquent interest.

When there is a change of ownership, the utility bill is to be forwarded from the previous owner to the new owner.  If you are a new homeowner and have not received a tax or utility bill, please contact the tax/utility department.
