Your responsibilities

Payment options

Many Utilities Kingston customers benefit from the convenience of one combined bill for all their utility services, which may include water, wastewater, gas and electricity. A combined bill helps lower costs for everyone.

We like to avoid penalizing customers for late payment. Please allow sufficient time for your payment to reach the Utilities Kingston office by the due date. Any account that is not paid in full by the due date will be considered past due and subject to appropriate collection action, which may include interruption of service.
