NOTEWORTHY

AUTOMATIC TAX BILL PAYMENT OPTION
Residents and businesses may now pay their tax bills automatically.
For the winter tax bill you designate the date of payment as either December 31st or February 14th. By taking advantage of this program, your taxes will always be paid on time whether you are sick or out of town. Added benefits are no checks to write, no need to wonder if the check was received in time to avoid penalty and no trips to City Hall.
Participants in automatic bill payment of property taxes receive their tax bill in the mail on July 1st and December 1st with a letter confirming when the withdrawal will be made from their account.
PLEASE NOTE: This is a year-round program. Electronic Funds Payment is not available for only the summer tax or only the winter tax bill.
If you have any questions regarding automatic bill payment for your taxes, call the Treasurer’s Office at 248-449-9901. Visit our website to fill out the form to enroll.

SEWAGE BACKUPS
A note to our residents: Most homeowners insurance will not cover sewage backups. Please check with your insurance provider to obtain this coverage. Check valves called “backflow preventers” can help minimize back up occurrences and related damage. Check with your plumber or contact a licensed plumber in your area. If you don’t have insurance that covers sewage backups and you do not have a check valve in your sewer line, you should consider having one installed.

PAPERLESS BILLING OPTION FOR UTILITIES
Utility bill customers may now sign up to receive email bills or arrange for automatic payment through the City's website. E-bills are emailed on the billing date with a full page bill attached in pdf format. Automatic payment is an arrangement between the customer's bank and our bank by which the amount due is deducted from the customer's account each due date. You can sign up by clicking here or email Wendy Gutowski with questions.
