Public works assumes water and sewer billing services
The Calvert County Department of Public Works, Water and Sewerage Division, have taken over the water and sewer billing services from the Department of Finance and Budget effective Jan. 7.
The organizational change was approved by the Calvert County Board of County Com- missioners in September.
Previously, billing services were provided by finance and budget, but the integration of billing into the Water and Sewerage Division will allow the division to identify service issues quicker, and decrease response time for meter and service problems, as well as provide greater segregation of duties between billing, adjustments, receipting and preparation of financial statements, a press release states.
While the organizational change should be transparent to most customers, walk-in customers will now need to visit 150 Main St., Suite 206 in Prince Frederick for assistance, the release states.
Quarterly water and sewer bills will continue to be mailed the first business day of January, April, July and October. Call the customer service office at 410-535-1600, ext. 2211, to request a copy of a bill if not received by the 10th of the month.
Payments are due at the end of the month and can be made by check, credit card, through online bill pay or automated billing direct from a checking account.
