What happens if I don’t pay this user fee?

Stormwater Drainage System Services user fees are identical to the other utilities you receive services from, and are billed for, on a monthly basis.

As described in Lewiston City Code § 36.5-16(b), if payment is not made on or before the fifteenth day of the month, the payment shall be considered delinquent; a late fee, as established by the City Council, shall be applied to the account on the twenty-first day of the month. Delinquent payments shall result in special assessments on your property as outlined in Lewiston City Code § 36.5-19.

For more information on the user fees, please visit the Stormwater Drainage System Utility page. If you have questions about what utility bill payments options are available, please contact Utility Billing at 208-746-3671 extension 0, ubinquiries@cityoflewiston.org, or in-person at 1134 F Street.
