Utility Bill Schedule Change


In April 2017, the City of Pierre will be changing the date your utility bill is mailed and due. This change results in a change to the due date and a change to the date the Automatic Payment is withdrawn.

 

During the transition, your first bill in April will be for a shorter period. However, the month following April will always be for the same number of days of the prior month. There will no longer be any bills for 5 weeks under the new billing schedule.

 

Please note the following New Billing Schedule:

*  April 7th will be the First Bill mailed under the New Schedule

*  Bills will be mailed on the First (1st) Friday of the Month

*  Bills will be due on the Third (3rd) Friday of the Month

*  ACH withdrawal will occur on the Third (3rd) Friday of the Month

If you have any further questions,  please contact City Hall at 773-7407 or email Twila.Hight@ci.pierre.sd.us or Brad.Smith@ci.pierre.sd.us


How did we get the word out?

The City included a flier in the February Utility Bills.

A letter was mailed to each utility customer in March.

Presentations were provided to the City Commission of the past several months.

The Mayor has spoke about the change on local radio stations.
