Penalties

Customers not opting to pay their annual sewer service fee may pay the quarterly amount due by the end of each quarter.  If quarterly amount is not received by the district by the end of each quarter, the bill is considered delinquent. The district assess 6% or $3.00 per quarter, whichever is greater, for each quarter that the charge remains unpaid after the delinquent date.

Delinquent sewer service fees, connection fees and construction fees which are not received by the district by June 30th of each year are certified to the Klamath County Tax Assessor for collection as established under Oregon Revised Statue 454.225.  The district imposes a penalty on all delinquent accounts for sewer service fees, system development fees, connection fees and construction fees at an additional amount of 18% of the delinquent fees on all accounts which are certified to the Tax Assessor of Klamath County, Oregon, for collection by the district.  Such penalties shall be a lien upon the property served.  The 18% penalty is in addition to the 6% penalty above.  Once an account has been placed with the Klamath County Tax Assessor for collection, the District no longer tracks the amount owed to the District for the year in which the delinquence has occured. The deliquent amount is paid to the County with the payment of property taxes.
