Utility Billing Information
Fitchburg Utilities send bills out on a quarterly basis. Every March, June, September and December bills are generated and you should receive your bill by the end of every billing month. Bills are then due on the 25th of April, July, October and January. If the 25th falls on a weekend or holiday, bills are due the next business day.
Delinquent Utility Notices
