If your bill is submetered, it is based on your individual usage. Therefore, if your bill is high compared to your neighbor, they may have used less water/gas/electricity. If it is not submetered then it is based on square footage of your unit and\or the number of residents in that unit to determine your usage and allocate that onto your monthly bill.
The mail can take 5-10 days to deliver your check, depending on where you are located. We recommend sending your check in as soon as you get your bill, but at minimum 5 days before the bill is due to make sure we receive your check on time to avoid the late fee. If you send it within 10 days before the due date and you still get a late fee, please give us a call and we can discuss further options to help avoid this in the future.
If you made a payment after the invoice was generated it won’t be updated accurately, you can call us at 402-734-4900 option 3 and inquire about your most updated balance.
There are a couple reasons behind fees on your utility bill:
Account Setup/Termination Fee(s) one time fees for starting or ending an account.
Service Fee is our fee for generating, auditing, and mailing the bills.
Any Specific Utility Fee is a fee that comes directly from the utility company’s bill and equally divided among all of the units at a property so each person gets a share.
