New Policy for Tecumseh Utility Billing & Late/Shutoff Notices

With the integration of a new computer system, the City of Tecumseh has seen fit to modify the policy outlining when utility bills are due and how late and shutoff notices will be handled.

In the past, City Clerk Janelle Moran explained, utility customers could drop off their payments at any time on the 10th of the month, all the way up to the opening of business on the 11th and still have the payment considered to be on time. That will no longer be the case. ALL UTILITY PAYMENTS ARE DUE BY THE CLOSE OF BUSINESS (4:00 p.m.) ON THE 10th OR THE NEXT BUSINESS DAY IF THE 10th IS ON A WEEKEND OR HOLIDAY. Any payments delivered after hours on the 10th will be considered late and late fees will apply.
