Billing & Rate Information

Bill Frequency

Water and sewer services are billed monthly. Your MCUS statement will include the service dates, the amount due and the due date. Payments received after the due date will be subject to a 10% late penalty.  

Service may be disconnected for non-payment in accordance with City Ordinance 51.47. When it becomes necessary for the city to disconnect a customer for non-payment of bills, service will only be reinstated after all past due amounts have been paid, in addition to a $50 reconnection fee. Reconnection after shut-off for non-payment will not be available after hours.

See MCUS Payment Options.

Billing questions should be directed to MCUS at (217) 762-2583 or mcus@cityofmonticello.net.
