Prepaid Utilities offers a way for you to pay your utilities as you go. No more surprise bills at the end of the month. You have more control over your bill. Pay for utilities before you use them. As a prepaid customer you’ll be empowered to monitor your consumption more closely and better manage your bill.
Before signing up for prepaid, there are a few things to consider: • Does your monthly bill align with the timing of your income? If not, prepaid allows you to pay when it’s convenient for you. • You must be able to receive notifications via email or phone. • Your balance must always remain above $0 to ensure a connected service. If it falls below $0, services will be disconnected with short notice. • You will not receive a monthly bill.
After adding funds to your account, you are billed daily instead of monthly. Your daily bills reduce your account balance. You are required to maintain a balance of $0 or above to maintain utility service. You will receive various alerts to help you manage your balance and to know when its time to add funds.
Prepaid customers will not receive a paper bill. Instead, prepaid customers will be able to see a daily breakdown of their utility charges through the municipal online payments system.
Log on to your same account log in online. You can view your account balance, your daily cost, your average cost, how many estimated days you have left of service based on your account balance. Your daily bills are displayed in the same municipal online system.

If you make a payment prior to the cutoff, your services will remain intact. • Disconnect – if sufficient payment is not made prior to the scheduled disconnect, services will be turned off until payment is made to bring your account balance above $0. • Reconnect – if a disconnect has occurred and you make sufficient payment to bring your account above $0, your account will be reconnected.
