Payment & Fees

Pay on Time and Avoid Late Fees !

About two thirds of District customers already pay their utility bills within the 20-day payment period — before a second “reminder” notice is sent. Sending the second notice is costly, and this cost will continue to rise with postal rates.

In March, 2002, the District Board initiated a $5 charge against all water and sewer accounts requiring a “reminder” notice. Of course, the $5 charge is completely avoidable — simply pay your utility bill when it is received.
The purpose of the fee is to pass the cost of the “second notice” directly to the customers who require it. Forty-eight hour “door-hanger” notices and reconnect fees have also increased to cover their costs. This is another example of how the OCSD Board closely monitors how District funds are spent.

Want to send a copy of your water bill to your tenant?

Courtesy Notices Are Now Available.
The District is now offering “courtesy billing” for non-resident property owners. This means a water/sewer bill is sent to the owner of the property as usual, while a second “courtesy” statement is sent to the tenant. This service is provided, for a small fee, to properties where tenants are responsible for water/sewer payments. District tenant billing will help eliminate notification delays and late payments. If you have questions, or if you are interested in signing up for this service, please contact the District office for the necessary forms.

PROVIDED AT PROPERTY OWNER’S REQUEST.

WRITTEN AUTHORIZATION IS REQUIRED .
