Utility Bills and Collection Process
Utility meters are read and bills mailed to customers every month. Customers are responsible for the timely payment of the account, regardless of whether the bill is received or not. If the bill is not paid by the due date, a penalty of 10% of the current bill is applied to the account and a final notice reflecting the balance plus penalty is mailed. The final notice gives the customer additional time to pay the bill. Utility service will be disconnected if the payment is not received in the Utility Office in full by the following month’s due date. The total balance due on the account must be paid in cash after disconnection to have the utilities reconnected.
Georgetown Utility Systems has a 3 step notification process to advise customers of unpaid balances (outlined below). Georgetown Utility Systems will never call customers and demand payments over the phone (we will only advise of a past due balance). If any of our customers have any questions regarding their bill, please call our Customer Care Center at 512-930-3640 before giving out financial information regarding their utility account.
3-Step Notification Process for Past due accounts:
Late Notices are mailed to customers with unpaid balances the day after the billing due date.
An Automated phone call is provided to the phone number on the account two weeks after the billing due date.
A second Automated phone call is provided to the phone number on the account three weeks after the billing due date.
It is strictly against policy for any customer service representative to accept payment in the field.
We are aware that some customers have noticed a difference in the taste or smell of the water coming from their taps. This change is a result of naturally occurring changes in Lake Georgetown. We have changed the treatment process to improve the taste and smell. Be assured that the water is safe to drink and that the taste and smell will eventually go back to normal as the lake completes its change cycle.
