Riverside’s penalties for late water bill payments may become more severe. Rusty Rogerson, city administrator, explains during the budgeting process in March, the council elected to increase late penalties to 10%. Meaning a penalty amounting to 10% of your bill is added once the bill becomes past due, and then each additional week it’s late. The ordinance change would also increase the non-sufficient funds check policy from $25 to $30.
There will be another chance for input on the proposed changes at their next meeting.
