Payment Options

Billing Cycle & Due Date

We read your meter from the office in Lamar near or at the end of each calendar month. Payment is due in our office on or before the 15th of the following month. Allow ample time for delivery before the 15th when mailing your payment. Failure of receiving a bill by mail does not exclude you from monthly payment or late penalty. We have a 24-hour drive-up drop box located at our office in Lamar. Any questions you may have about your bill should be asked prior to the due date.
