   Please note: Have your utility bill ready to enter your account information and PIN number.

****Also, please note it takes at least 48 hours for your payment to post to your utility account when paying through the Website****


     Payments for Town of Middletown Utility Bills can be mailed in, dropped off in the outside utility box along the driveway of Town Hall, brought inside to the drop off box in the lobby, or given to the cashier when a receipt is needed.  Please do not use staples or tape, and be sure to write your account number on your check or money order.  Also, due to recent potential scams, the Town of Middletown requires a form of ID

     We accept cash, debit cards (no credit cards at this time), checks, money orders and cashiers checks at our cashier window. Other payment methods include automatic direct debit and budget billing, which are automatically taken out of your checking or savings account each month when the bill is due.

  • Late Payments Once your electric bill becomes seven (7) days past due ($25 and above), a $5 late charge will be assessed to your account. Your late water/sewer bill ($25 and above) will be assessed a six (6) percent fee on your balance (both water and sewer balances). Once a bill is seven (7) days past due, electric service is in jeopardy of being disconnected. Any disconnect notice for previous balances will be printed on your current bill (mailed prior to disconnect date).

  • Disconnects: Electric service disconnections for non-payment will be done as necessary, weather permitting. All payments to re-establish disconnected service as a result of non-payment must be made in person at the Town Office, located at 19 W. Green St., Middletown. Payment must be made for entire past due balance. The Town Office will remain open on disconnection days until 7 p.m.

  • Adverse Weather: Should adverse weather conditions prohibit service disconnections, disconnection will be rescheduled for the next weather-permitting business day (excludes weekends and holidays). When weather is a factor and disconnections are rescheduled, the Town Office hours will be extended to 7 p.m. on the actual disconnection day only.

  • Reconnects:  When service is disconnected, your "entire past due balance" must be paid in full. There is a $35 reconnection fee on disconnection days (8 a.m. to 7 p.m.)  If you miss making a payment by 7 p.m. that day, payments can be made the following day from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. to have your service reconnected.

  • Payment Arrangements: Your account is entitled to two payment arrangements per calendar year. You are now required to pay at least one-third of the balance due when making arrangements, which must be made prior to the scheduled disconnect day (date found on current bill). To view the payment arrangement policy in full: Payment Arrangement Policy. No payment arrangements can be made once a disconnect call has been dispatched.
