Online Utility Payments
On Thursday, July 31st, the Fresno City Council rescinded the previously approved water rate increases, thereby restoring the rate schedule that was last in place on September 16, 2013. The rate rescission was effective 8/1/14, and will impact water bills from that date forward.
The City of Fresno Utilities Billing and Collections Division typically bills approximately 6,000 accounts a day, and the billing periods are generally 30 days in duration and span across two months. For water consumed during the June/July billing period, residents will see an increase and pro-ration of their water charges to reflect the rate increase that went into effect July 1, 2014. Similarly, for water consumed during the July/August billing period, residents will see a decrease and pro-ration of their water charges to reflect the rate decrease that went into effect August 1, 2014.
As currently planned, all bills should stabilize during the August/September billing period. If customers have any questions about their utility bill, they are encouraged to call 559-621-6888.
