Utility Billing

Village of Germantown Citizen Self Service Portal - ONLINE UTILITY BILL PAYMENTS

The Village of Germantown recently switched to a new utility billing software system and online payments portal. 

The Citizen Self Service Portal will allow residents to pay their utility bills, change their mailing addresses, change their bill delivery preferences, view consumption history, etc.

Billing Cycles

Water and Sewer bills are sent out quarterly, Jan 1st, April 1st, July 1st and Oct 1st. They are due within 20 days of the billing date. Germantown calculates the volume charges per 1,000 gallons used.

Germantown Utilities crew members collect usage data from your water meter with an automatic meter reading (AMR) device. Our data collection devices read your meter from a distance and store that information in a format that is then downloaded into our billing software to help produce your quarterly billing statement.

In some cases or during certain times of year when we are not able to get close enough to your meter, our data collection devices are not able to communicate with your meter to deliver consumption data. In that event, we provide you with an estimated billing statement, based on your normal usage history for that time of year. Any difference between the amount actually used and the estimated amount billed is corrected automatically when the next regular meter reading is obtained.  Ultimately, you pay only for the amount of water actually used.
