Everything you need to know about your water bill and your water meter should be right here on this page, but if you have any questions, please don't ever hesitate to contact us!
Our office hours are Monday through Friday 8:30 am – 5:00 pm.
Water Billing Cycle The Town of Grand Island is divided into three billing cycles. Each cycle is billed quarterly based on usage through the meter for the prior three months. Water meters have a radio transponder on them which allows us to read the meter from the street. Unless there is a problem reading the meter, each billing is based on actual usage.
Paying Your Water Bill Water/sewer bills can be paid by mail or in person Monday through Friday 8:30 am – 5:00 pm at:
Town Clerk’s Office Grand Island Town Hall 2255 Baseline Road Grand Island, New York 14072
If you come to see us we are upstairs, past the Court Clerk's office.
In addition, there is a drop box located outside the main entrance of Town Hall where payments can be deposited. Please note: payments left in the drop box are posted the following business day.
Bills can be paid by cash, check or money order (payable to “Town Clerk”). Credit cards are accepted in the clerk’s office but a fee will apply. ACH (auto pay) is another method of payment available. Click here for the Enrollment Form for ACH.
We do not take payments over the phone.
Quarterly water bills are due on the 15th of the month. Payments must be received on or before the due date after which a 10% penalty will be added. Failure to receive a bill does not waive the past due penalty. If the 15th falls on a weekend or holiday, payments are accepted penalty free on the next business day. If not paid by October 31, arrears will be assessed against your Erie County property tax.
