Utility Billing Office

Important Information 

On September 14th, from approximately 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., the New Utility Billing System Munis Self Service online payment portal will be temporarily unavailable. The City will be upgrading the portal to allow users to link multiple accounts and to position the City to accept other payments types in the future (ex. Personal Property and Real Estate Taxes) through the same portal. We anticipate that online services will be restored by 8:00 p.m. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience as we continue to transition to our new online payment system. For more information, please visit the New Utility Billing System page located at the link to the left. 

Services

City of Fredericksburg residents in single-family and duplex households receive drinking water, sewer, and refuse / recycling collection services from the city.

Refuse and recycling are optional services except in high density areas (townhomes) where refuse is required.

Billing for city customers is bi-monthly.

Rates

Service Fees

Water and sewer service fees are based on the size of the water meter serving the property. These fixed charges are billed bi-monthly and are designed to recover fixed operational costs such as meter reading, customer service operations and general administrative overhead.
