City Utility Bills


Online City Utility Bill Payments


Starting November 1, 2013, you will be able to pay online City utility bills (water, sanitary sewer, and garbage/ recycling). Please print, fill-out, and return this Authorization for Withdrawals form to sign up to have your City utility bills paid automatically online.



City Utility Bills – Water, Sewer, and Garbage

The City of New Buffalo's bill for water, sewer, and garbage services is mailed out ever other month for services used in the prior billing cycle.  City utility bills typically include:

WR:  Water Ready to serve – This fee is charged for having water ready for your use, regardless of whether any water is used or not.

WU:  Water Usage – Water usage is billed at $3.16 per 1,000 gallons consumed.

SR:  Sewer Ready to serve – This fee is charged for having sewer service ready for your use, regardless of whether sewer service is used or not.

SU:  Sewer Usage – Sewer usage is billed at $4.38 per 1,000 gallons consumed.

GB:  Garbage Bill – Recycling and waste collection service is billed at $11.08 per month per unit, regardless of whether this service is used or not.

Here is the complete water, sewer, and garbage fee schedule.

Payment of City Utility Bills

Payments are due the last day of the month.  A 10% penalty will be applied after that date.

All payments made to the City can be paid by check, cash or credit card. Credit cards are accepted at City Hall only with a convenience fee of $5.50.  If you have any questions, please contact us at 269-469-1500.

Water is one of our most valuable resources:  Please Conserve!

Water Waste at 40 lbs. Pressure
A 1/32” Leak Wastes 170 Gallons in 24 Hours
A 1/16” Leak Wastes 970 Gallons in 24 Hours
A 1/8” Leak Wastes 3,600 Gallons in 24 Hours
A 1/4” Leak Wastes 11,030 Gallons in 24 Hours

So, to be safe:
* Check every faucet and toilet for leaks —
Even a slow leak can waste large amounts of water every day
* Repair leaks immediately
