Utility Bill Penalty Change

Please be aware changes pertaining to penalties charged to your utility bill payments for extensions are on the way, starting January 1, 2020.

  • The City of Belleville will only charge one penalty a month after the 15th, this penalty will be 10% of the amount due.  
  • The City will no longer charge 5% after the 15th, nor will there be a $15 default charge added on the 20th of the month.
  • The extension fee of $40 will now be due at the time the extension is requested and not when the extension is due.
  • Remember, these changes do not take effect until the January billing cycle.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact the City Office at 527-2288.
