Could the city manager be a bigger asshole?? They decide to up the date water is due. Some people are on a budget and fixed income. No extentions not even for two days. They pick up trash when they feel like it, I have sen a man attacied by a stray dog because there is no dog catcher. What is it with the city? This is a great town, why feel the need to be such pricks to people? Not to mention if you are one day late you have to pay a recconection fee, even if it was never turned off. Thats wrong.

I think your the only one getting screwed. My water an everyone I knows bill is due on the 10th. They won't turn it off till the 21st which is ridiculous to me. I've paid mine late several times and never paid a reconnection fee. And there is a dog catcher but he is also a volunteer firefighter here in town. I have noticed he holds a bit of a grudge though, he has been trying to catch my cousins dog for a while now but he will drive by her house several times to see if he is lose. She has gotten tickets from him.

I believe town contracts the trash out so they cant control when it gets picked up. And I have gotten an extension on my bill before. As long as you keep your end of the arrangement the manager is always willing to help however he can.

I was told to get any kind of extension you have to pay an extra $50.

Yeah you do, that part sucks but the way I looked at it is if my water got cut off I'd be paying that anyway and not have water...at least you don't get cut off.

Yeah I understand that. I've some how been lucky enough to be able to scrape up the money so far if I have had to. But that also left me completely broke for a good week till payday.

No it's usually due on the 10th. They also told me that if the 10th fell on the weekend that it would be due the previous Friday or following Monday. Are you talking about septembers bill or October?

Bills are actually due on the 10th with out penalty...after the 10th there is a late fee that's like 5 or 10 percent. You have until the 20th to pay it though (usually) 21st is cut off day. They moved it up to the 19th because they don't want to have people's water shut off over the weekend. So you actually have an entire 20 days to pay it....
