CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -- A recent change in the billing for sewer bill payments has created some confusion for customers in Chattanooga and nearby Rossville.
The City of Chattanooga, in a news release issued Thursday, has clarified some of the issues voiced by customers and addressed other changes in the fees and collection.
Going forward there will not be a $3.00 fee per month for recurring payments via e-check.
Anyone that is currently on the recurring payment program via e-checks will not have to pay a $3.00 recurring fee; anyone charged the $3.00 fee will receive a $3.00 credit to their account.
ENCO, the billing service contractor, will reprint the back of all bills to reflect the elimination/removal of the $3.00 fee for the recurring bank draft made via e-check. (after the existing stock is used) However the front of the invoice will include a note that states - there is not a $3.00 fee for payments fee via e-check. There will still be a $3.00 fee for all online, all IVR operator assisted payments and recurring payments via credit cards.
The issue of the, "less than 15 days notice from the bill date," has been resolved. Going forward, ENCO will always have a due date of 15 days from the day the bills are mailed - which is consistent with other utility payments.
If you pay at a payment center such as Walmart you will pay a transaction fee to the processor for making a payment. At this point in time these payment centers only take debit cards or cash and no checks or credit card. This was not a change. Please allow 3 business days for these payments to post to your sewer billing account
There is no fee for mailing in payments with a check or a bank bill pay check initiated by the customer; please do not mail cash.
