Monthly – pay an equal monthly payment amount on the first business day of every month automatically from your bank account.

To calculate your monthly amount we use your own account consumption history for the past year, multiplied out by the current rates and divided by twelve so that your monthly payment reflects your average usage.  Equal payment accounts are reviewed semi-annually to ensure the account is not getting too far ahead or too far behind.  Any balance owing or credit balance is then worked into your monthly payment amount and notification is sent. 

To set up your utilities account for monthly  pre-authorized payment, print the application and submit to Town Hall – you will receive confirmation that the plan is set up via mail or email.
