Late Payments

Notice: Please be advised that our billing cycle for bimonthly accounts is typically 60 days. Recently, there have been delays, which have resulted in billing cycles of 75+ days. If your balance due is higher than expected, examine the “Days” column on your bill to determine if this situation applies to you. You are not being charged more. You are only paying for the water used. Payment due dates have been adjusted accordingly. Thank you for your patience and understanding! For more information, contact CityLink Online or call 311 or 336-727-8000.

We strive to deliver your water and wastewater bills to you well before they are due. Therefore, when payment for a bill is not received by its due date, a 10 percent late charge is added to the amount due and a termination notice will be sent within seven (7) days.

You are given at least fourteen (14) days from the date the termination notice is sent to make payment. If payment on a past due account has not been received by 5 p.m. on the termination date, a $20 late fee is applied and service is scheduled for disconnection. (Also note that the $20 late fee is added, whether your water is physically terminated or not.)

A deposit may also be required if your service has been terminated for non-payment and your average bill is $50 or more. If your average bill is less than $50, a minimum deposit of $50 will apply. All deposits are equal to one and one-half times the average bi-monthly or monthly bill amount. For example, if your average bill is $57.90, your deposit amount would be $57.90 x 1.5 = $86.85. All outstanding bills and required deposits must be paid before service is restored.
