Property Owner Consent to Tenant Billing

  1. City Policy and Overview

    City policy requires that water bills be the responsibility of the owner of the property. Delinquent bills for water used on the property can become a lien against the property, not against the tenant. By completing the Property Owners Consent to Tenant Billing form, you are authorizing the tenant or property manager to act as your agent to receive all water billings and/or delinquent and shut-off notices. In this circumstance, no billing will be sent to you. 

    You can telephone the City at any time to have current charges quoted to you. As an alternative to the above, if you would like to receive a copy of the statement, we will mail one to you once a separate request is provided. By receiving a copy of the statement, you can review the status of the account and take necessary action to pay any delinquent water charges or ensure it is being paid by the tenant. 

    Any delinquent balances resulting in the shut-off of water service by the City will require payment in full for all past due balances, late fees and shut off penalties before water service is restored. If any balance remains unpaid, water will remain shut off and a lien may be placed on your property for collection.
