Budget Billing, Utility Billing

Knowing how much to budget each month for your utility bill could make paying your bills much easier. The City of Longmont’s Budget Billing plan offers this convenience by averaging your last 12 monthly billing periods, so that you pay the same amount each month. For convenience, the plan applies to all utility services—water, electric, sanitation and storm drainage.

All residential customers whose service is not being discontinued may be eligible. You must have six months of billing history with good credit at the same residence and your account must be current in order to qualify for the plan.

Simply download and print out the request form by clicking on the link below. Fill out the form and mail it to the City of Longmont Utility Billing Division with your next monthly utility bill. Your form must be received at least 15 days prior to the beginning of your next customer billing cycle to be activated for payment of that bill. The Utility Billing staff will calculate your new monthly payment amount by adding together your last 12 months' figures, dividing by 12, and then adding five percent of the average. The five percent is added in an effort to minimize the amount that you might owe at the end of your 12 month period. Utility Billing will then send you a letter informing you of your monthly budget billing amount. Each year your budget billing amount is recalculated and could change if your average bill changed during that year.  In order to remain on budget billing, your payment must be received by the due date each month.
