WHEN YOU WISH TO HAVE THE WORK ORDER ISSUED, YOU MAY CONTACT OUR OFFICE AT (239) 533-8160.
REMEMBER: Upon request we will hold an installation work order. However, it takes approximately one to three weeks to have your meter installed.
Reimbursement of installation fees paid will be refunded only if installation does not occur.
The Lee County Utilities Customer Service will need the original receipt and a written request to process the reimbursement voucher.
The first bill for every new account will reflect a $45.00, initial service charge.
This is a water service fee for obtaining a beginning meter read and establishing billing and account records.
Accounts are billed monthly. Bills not paid by the date due as shown on the bill are considered late. Payments "in the mail" do not constitute payment. When accounts are turned off for nonpayment, a reconnection service charge will be due.
Should you have any questions, please call (239) 533-8160
