Bills for Rental Properties

Bills are sent to the property owners only. If you have rental property, it is the owners’ responsibility to provide the bills to or collect payment from your renters. If sewer bills are not paid, the delinquent amounts are placed on the property tax bill, therefore, we only bill the property owner so you are aware of all outstanding balances.
