Utility Billing

Utility Billing is a division of the Village's Finance Department responsible for invoicing residents for monthly water usage, sanitary sewer maintenance, and monthly garbage service. This division is also responsible for investigating and resolving customer concerns regarding utility bills and reporting service or equipment problems. 

The Village of Montgomery sewer maintenance charge is for maintaining the physical sewer lines that run through the infrastructure. This charge will fluctuate based on your usage. Fox Metro Water Reclamation District (Fox Metro) is a public utility responsible for wastewater treatment, most often generated using toilets, sinks, bathing, dishes, and laundry). Fox Metro treats this water. You will receive a bill from Fox Metro every other month based on your water usage.

All residential and commercial customers should receive a bill monthly via email or postal service based on their billing preferences. Payment is due on or before the 20th of each month. A 10% late fee will apply if the payment is processed after that date. View 2021-2025 Water Rate Sheet.
