Late Fees & Other Charges

Late Payments

Payment of your utility bill is due by the date indicated on your bill. The city assesses a late payment penalty of 1% per month (12% annually) on any past due portion of the utility bill.

Past Due Charges

Upon becoming past due, utility charges constitute a variable and accrued statutory lien against the property. These past due charges may be recorded as a lien with Broward County, but are not required to be recorded to be effective and binding.

Returned Payment

  • Returned payment charge of $15 or 5%, whichever is greater.
