    ***Special Notice***

    Utility Customer Service (UCS) reads each water meter monthly to determine your water utility bill for the month.  Over the last several years, Carrollton has grown in specific areas of the City creating an imbalance to the number of meters being read daily by staff.  This imbalance creates multiple issues for staff.  UCS has partnered with RouteSmart Technologies to reroute the water utility meters to create a more efficient and effective set of cycles and routes.  These new cycles and routes could potentially move customers’ bill and due dates.  However, no customer will be moved more than three (3) cycles forward or backwards to accomplish our task.  To see if your water utility account has been affected by the new cycles and routes, please look at your December 2017 statement and compare it to your January 2018 statement.  In the upper right hand section, you will see a Cycle and Route listed for your service.  If both statements are the same, your account was not affected.  If they are different, your account was moved to a new cycle and route.  Your bill and due date will change slightly.

    Should you have any questions regarding this change, please contact us through ContactUs@cityofcarrollton.com and we will be happy to answer your questions.

     

     

    Utility Billing
    Utility bills are rendered every month and represent approximately 30 days of service. There are two basic classes of service: commercial and residential. The following services are billed on the City of Carrollton utility bill:

    • Water
      • Water meters are read each month
      • The water billed represents the water usage since the last meter reading - the prior month
      • Water is billed in thousand gallon increments
      • For current water and wastewater rates, click here.

    • Wastewater
      • Wastewater billed is the average of the water consumption during the months of January, February and March
      • The average is billed each month from the April bill through the March bill the following year.
      • For example: If the water usage at your residence is:
        • January = 10 T gal
        • February = 10 T gal
        • March = 13 T gal
        • Total 33 T gal / 3 months = 11 T gal average
        • The wastewater billed for the next year from April through March would be 11 T gal per month.

    • Solid Waste (Residential / Commercial 95-Gallon Cart Only / Apartment)

    • Fees
      The fee for late payment of bills was approved by the City Council and was established to encourage prompt payment and to help defray the cost of field trips to the premise. 
      • Bills paid each month, by the due date, will not incur a late fee. 
      • If a customer is in a temporary financial bind and needs more time to pay, a pay agreement may be arranged. As long as the terms of the pay agreement are met, the customer is not charged a late fee. 
      • Also, if a customer pays the past due amount of a two-month bill by the due date on the bill, a late fee will not be charged. 
      • Customers with a two-month bill that is not paid by the due date on the bill will be charged a late fee of $25.  Customers have the option to pay at City Hall between 7:30AM – 5:30PM Monday through Thursday and 7:30AM – 11:30AM Friday.  Other options available are by phone Monday through Friday from 7:00AM – 6:00PM, at the drive-through kiosk located at City Hall or at any Fidelity Express location.  Payments made at any of these locations must be paid and posted by 11:59PM on the due date.  Payments made after midnight are considered the next business day and the late fee will be assessed.
      • If a two-month bill is not paid by the late fee notification date, the account will be subject to interruption and full payment of all outstanding charges and an interruption day fee of $25 will be required to restore service.
