The finance department is responsible for billing of water, sewer, and garbage service to approximately 19,600 homes and commercial properties in the City of Blaine. The utility billing number has an answering machine available after hours for the convenience of those who do not have access to a phone during regular working hours of 8AM to 4:30PM.
Bills are sent quarterly to residential customers and monthly to commercial companies for the previous months' services. All bills are due on the last day of the month. Any payments not received by the due date will result in a 10% late payment penalty. Any accounts that become delinquent are certified to the county for collection with the property taxes.
