Returned Checks & Non-Payment
Checks returned to the county due to insufficient funds or closed accounts will result in a returned check fee based on the following schedule:
Penalties For Non Payment
- Up to $50: $25
- $50.01 to $300: $30
- $300.01 to $800: $40
- Over $800: 5% of the check's face value
A delinquent fee equal to 10% of the unpaid balance will be charged for accounts past due.
Services, once disconnected, will not be reconnected until the outstanding balance (including past due and current charges) is paid in full. There is a fee if a county employee has been dispatched to disconnect your service. Any bill not paid within 30 days of the billing date is delinquent and subject to cut-off. A 48-hour notice will be provided to the customer prior to disconnection.
A service fee will be charged if the county responds to a request for reconnection after 5:00 pm, on weekends, or on holidays.
The county reserves the right to terminate services and apply the customer's deposit to the amount due during final billing.
