BOULDER CITY RESIDENTS:
NOVEMBER 2020 - UPDATED MESSAGE REGARDING UTILITY PAYMENTS: During the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Boulder City halted late fees or disconnect service for non-payment of utility bills. Beginning January 1, 2021, the City will resume these practices. Late fees are 5% of any unpaid balance on a bill. Customers will be charged a $60 reconnection fee for service restoration in addition to past due balances. Reconnection of services can take up to 24 hours. We continue to encourage customers to contact the Utility Billing office, where staff will discuss options (payment plans, financial aid). Failure to make payment arrangements or to comply with the terms of the arrangement will result in disconnection of services and all past due amounts must be paid. If you fail to meet the terms of a payment arrangement, you will not be allowed to make future arrangements for six months. The City has made a portion of CARES Act funding available for rent, mortgage and utility assistance through Emergency Aid of Boulder City. Visit www.eabcnv.com for more information.
