Water Billing Procedures
There is a drop-box located in the City Hall parking lot for after hour payment.Â Payments made after business hours areÂ posted the next business day, and are subject to a penalty.Â Please call (248) 546-4076 for details.
Starting August 1, 2010,Â there will no longer be Partial Payment Agreements (PPA's) made or past due bills mailed out. The past due amount will be included in the regular bill.
Turn on Policy
Once water service has been shut-off for non-payment, residents must sign a turn-on form at the Water Department.Â The form willÂ reflectÂ aÂ $50.00 turn-on fee assessed on theÂ next regular bill.
Minimum Bill Policy
If a building or home has a water service line, stop box, or is connected to the water/sewer system, then a minimum bill will be charged monthly even if the water is off and the meter is pulled.Â This is because the City still has to maintain the stop box and the water/sewer line for future use.
Request Water Shut Off
To have the water shut off at a property for repairs or because the property is vacant the property owner or someone authorized by the property owner must come in to the water department. We will need to make a copy of your driver’s license or state id, you will be required to sign a form stating that you are the owner or have authorization from the owner to shut the water off. There is a $20 charge for this service that must be paid before we will shut the water off.
Bills and billing histories are available online for free. If you choose not to use this service copies of bills or billing histories must be requested in person at the water department, there will be a charge of $1.00 per page.
