Equal Payment Program
If your account is current and you have resided for a minimum of one year at your current address, you can apply for the Equal Payment Plan.
How It Works
The Equal Payment Plan gives you the convenience of spreading your utility bill payments evenly over a full year’s time. The equal payment is figured by taking the last 12 months usage at your current address and dividing it equally.
Your meter will continue to be read each month. Annually, the City will compare your total utility usage for the year to the total amount you have paid. If your utility usage is more or less than the previous year, the City will adjust your monthly payment amount.
Your actual usage will continue to appear on the bill along with your equal payment amount and accumulative deferred balance. The deferred balance is the difference between the actual and Equal Payment Plan charged to your account. The deferred balance increases or decreases each time you are billed.
What Happens When I Terminate my Equal Payment Plan?
When the Equal Payment Plan is terminated, the deferred balance is applied to the next bill and becomes due.
