Rental Property Billing Notice

The District will work directly with our customer, the property owner, and no longer bill a property owner’s tenant. The billing change was made in response to uncollected tenant payments being charged back to the property owner responsible for the utility services provided. Property owners will now be able to control utility payments at their property and not rely on the District to provide this service.

Effective January 1, 2012, as tenants move out, or have water service terminated due to non-payment, accounts will be established exclusively in the homeowner’s name. Homeowner’s can also request their property’s account be established in their name at any time. As an alternative, homeowner’s may designate a licensed property management company to receive the utility bill.

Should you have any questions concerning this change, please contact Linda Chalou, Customer Service/Billing Supervisor at (719) 390-7111 or the Finance Director at (719) 955-7121.

Yours truly,
Widefield Water and Sanitation District
