Current utility bills are due by the first of each month (e.g. May bills are due by June 1). Any past due balances are due on the tenth of each month. A 10% penalty is applied to each bill unpaid after the first of each month. If the bill remains unpaid after the tenth of the month, service is subject to interruption, a 10% penalty, and a $25 service charge.
