Press Release, Calvert County Government
PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. – Jan. 3, 2019 – The Calvert County Department of Public Works, Water & Sewerage Division, will take over the water and sewer billing services from the Department of Finance & Budget effective Jan. 7, 2019. The organizational change was approved by the Calvert County Board of County Commissioners in September 2018.
Previously, billing services were provided by the Finance & Budget Department, but the integration of billing into the Water & Sewerage Division will allow the division to identify service issues quicker, and decrease response time for meter and service problems, as well as provide greater segregation of duties between billing, adjustments, receipting and preparation of financial statements.
While the organizational change should be transparent to most customers, walk-in customers will now need to visit 150 Main Street, Suite 206 in Prince Frederick for assistance.
Quarterly water and sewer bills will continue to be mailed the first business day of January, April, July and October. Please call the customer service office at 410-535-1600, ext. 2211 to request a copy of your bill if not received by the 10th of the month. Payments are due at the end of the month and can be made by check, credit card, through online bill pay or automated billing direct from a checking account. Visitonline for more information about bill payments and options.
The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
