WATER BILLING GENERAL INFROMATION
The Town of Topsail Beach always mails utility bills out on the last day of the month (or closest business day to the last day) and the bills are always due the 25th. We have several options available to you to ensure that you can pay your utility bill by the 25th, regardless of receipt of the actual bill. The first, and easiest, is to set your account up on bank draft. The Town will process our accounts set up on bank draft around the 23rd of the month and apply your payment to your account before we assess late fees. This must be done through a checking or savings account and the application can be found on our website or by clicking on the following link: BANK DRAFT APPLICATION, this can be returned via mail service or emailed to [email protected].
The second option is to create an account on our on-line bill pay system which can be found on the homepage of our website: topsailbeachnc.gov. This link is intended for people who would like to use a credit card to pay their utility bill. However, if you do not wish to pay with a credit card, you can still use this link to look up your balance owed and mail in your payment. Additionally, when you create your account you can select an option to receive an email notification when your new bill is processed.
Finally, if these are not reasonable options for you, the Town suggests that if you have not received your utility bill by the 10th of the month please call us at (910)328-5841 and we will be happy to assist you over the phone.
