Utility/Billing Services

The billing period will be from the 15th of each month to the 15th of the next month. Utility bills will be mailed out before the 1st day of each month and are due on or before the 15th of that month. If your bill is not paid by the 15th of the month we will access a fee of $5.00 or 10% of the bill, whichever is greater to your current bill. If your bill is not paid by the 25th of the month a $50.00 non-payment fee will assessed on the 26th of the month with a disconnection of service. Non-payment fee will be assessed.

Tampering

If water meters or hydrants are tampered with the Police Department will be notified immediately.

Adjustments for high water bills only occur on the determination of a leak by a Town of Maxton employee or a certified plumber. Adjustments will not be given until a repair has been made and the customer presents a receipt for that repair to the Town Office. Adjustments will be determined by calculating the six month average water/sewer bill. The number of gallons over the average consumption will be calculated by the per gallon rate and will be deducted from the bill. All adjustments must be approved by the Town Manager and will only be granted once in a 12 month period.

Public Works Schedule

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
