Water Billing Schedule
Water bills are sent out between February 14th and March 1st. Water billed is for the previous year January 1 through December 31. Payment or partial payment is due by April 1st, without penalty.
A reminder billing is sent out in the month of August for any open balances. Final payment or payment with penalty must be made by October 1st to Theresa Fish, Water Collections Clerk (see below). Delinquent unpaid amounts will become a lien against the property and placed on the tax roll if not paid in full by October 1st.
The penalty is 10% if not paid by April 1st. There is no additional penalty, applied by the town, after October 1st.
All unpaid water bills, not paid by October 1st, get turned over to Essex County and are added to your yearly Property Tax bill.
