Utility Payment Arrangement / Extension Request

  1. I am applying for a Water and Sewer Bill Payment Assistance Plan from the City of Cotati. By applying for this assistance plan, I agree to the following terms and conditions:

    • Failure to comply with the terms of a payment plan may result in the issuance of a written disconnection notice. The disconnection notice will be in the form of a letter issued to the service location no less than seven businesses days in advance of discontinuance of water service.
    • The City reserves the right to file a lien against your property for any amount delinquent on your water bill outside of an agreed upon payment plan in good standing.
    • In the event of default on the payment plan, all applicable charges and penalties will be due immediately.
    • The amount due as part of the payment plan is in addition to the current water and sewer bill. It is the responsibility of the person signing the payment plan to pay the current portion of their bill. Failure to do so will be considered default of the payment plan.
    • Supporting Documents Required for Alternative Payment Arrangements include the following for residential customers:
      1. Certification by Primary Care Provider
      2. Support for Inability to Pay 
        1. Tenants/Non-Owner applicants - A signed copy of lease is required. The payment plan cannot extend past the timeframe of the lease.
    • Commercial Customer:
      1. Support for Inability to Pay 
      2. Application for Small Business Loan or Other Demonstrated Effort to Pursue Other Sources of Revenue
