Utility Rates

Bills are due when rendered and past due 15 days after the date of the billing. If the account is still unpaid 40 days after the billing date it will be processed for shut-off. Your door will be tagged and a $25 tag charge will be applied to your bill. Payment must be received in City Hall prior to the date and time indicated on the tag.

Service Shut Off

If service has to be turned off, an additional $50 is assessed and all unpaid and delinquent charges have to be paid before water service can be restored. For service which has been disconnected, payment must be received at Longview City Hall by 3 p.m. to restore service that day. Please call our Collection Department with any inquiries.
