Water/Sewer Service Bill Information and Payment Options:

Due Date: The Town Of New Market bills its utility customers monthly.  Bills are generated and mailed by the first day of the month.  All bills are due on the 15th day of each month.  The Town of New Market is not responsible for failure of the U.S. Postal Service to deliver bills.  It is the responsibility of the customer to contact the Town Office to obtain the balance on their utility account if a bill is not received.

Past Due: Bills are due on the 15th day of each month.  If payment is not received by the 25th day of the month a 10% penalty will be assessed to the bill.  Payment must be received in the Town Office on or before the 25th day of the month to avoid a penalty.  Postmarks are not considered as on time payment.  If the 25th falls on a weekend or Town recognized holiday, payment will be considered on time if received by close of business the next business day.  If the full amount due including penalties is not paid within 60 days of the due date, service will be disconnected for non-payment without further notification. A reconnect fee of $35.00 will be assessed before service is resumed.  Upon payment of the full amount due including penalties and reconnect fee, utility service will be resumed within a reasonable time not to exceed 24 hours.  Please note that if a Town employee is dispatched to disconnect service, the $35.00 fee will be applied whether or not the service is disconnected prior to payment.

Payment processing policy: Payments are processed on the day they are received.  Any payments in the drop box are processed the next business day.  If payment is made by check or ACH, it is the payee’s responsibility to insure funds are in their bank account when payment is made.  The Town of New Market cannot hold checks. Any check returned for insufficient funds will be assessed a $25 returned check fee.
