City utility bills are rendered on a monthly billing cycle. If you do not receive your utility bill please contact utility customer services promptly. If your billing period exceeds 31 days and you believe this caused you to advance to a higher rate tier, please contact utility customer services promptly.
Late Payment Charges
A ten (10%) percent late fee is charged on balances not paid within twenty (20) days from the billing date. Applicable charges will appear on your next billing. If your late fee date falls on a weekend or holiday, your payment must be made by the prior business day to prevent a late fee charge to your account.
Payments - When Credited
Payments received in the finance department office prior to 2:00 p.m. are credited to your account on the same day. Payments received after 2:00 p.m. are credited the following business day.
Payment Drop Box
Payments by check/money order may be placed in the city's drive-by drop box, located at City Hall, 22 S. Beach Street. Payments placed in the drop box are credited to your account the following business day. The drop box is located in the driveway median behind the finance department in the City Hall parking lot.
Automatic Payment Bank Drafting
Payment of your utility account may be set up to automatically draft from your checking or savings account. Payment draft dates occur approximately twenty (20) days from the billing date. Program participants continue to receive a bill to inform you of the amount and the draft date. Contact utility customer service for more information on how to join the program.
Non-Pay Collection Fee / Service Disconnection
If your bill has a prior balance, your account is past due and subject to disconnection without further notice. Services may be disconnected for reason of non-payment of utility billings. Services, once disconnected, will not be reconnected until all of the outstanding balance on the account together with the collection charge is paid in full. Any bill not paid within thirty (30) days of the billing date is delinquent and subject to disconnection without further notice.
Reconnection charges are $15.00 for the hours of 7:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Reconnection charges after 4:30 p.m., and on weekends or holidays, are $50.00. There is a $15.00 collection fee if a city employee arrives at a service location to effect a disconnection of service and payment is then made.
Account Finals or Service Transfers
Please notify utility customer services at the City of Ormond Beach Finance Department, 22 S. Beach Street, regarding account finals, service transfers, or temporary disconnection of services.

Deposit on File
The city is hereby granted the authority to withdraw and expend any deposit collected by the city from any person for the provision of water and/or sewer services for the nonpayment of water, sewer, and/or garbage service charges by the person.

If a customer's monthly utility account becomes delinquent after the refund of the deposit the customer will be required to reestablish the water/sewer deposit at the current rate. Interest on Deposits is calculated and applied as a credit to the account in September of each year.
