Bills are mailed approximately 15 days before they are due. A bill will always be due on the 17th of each month. Failure to receive a bill will not entitle the customer extended time to pay. Bills paid after the due date are subject to an additional fee that is shown on your monthly bill.
Electronic - See Pay My Bill for various online options.
