Water & Sewer Bills
UTILITY ASSISTANCE FOR RENTERS
The Vermont Emergency Rental Assistance Program through the Vermont State Housing Authority was created to help renters dealing with financial challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic. For eligible households, the program offers rental and utility assistance to help Vermonters avoid eviction or loss of utility service.

Beginning in 2021, Town of Essex Water and Sewer bills are issued three times per year in March, July, and November due in April, August, and December on the due date stated on the bill. Payments may be mailed or paid at the Town Office. The bills were sent to property owners on a short time ago. Water customers who did not receive a bill should call 802-878-1359.
Payments may also be placed in the drop box (no cash please) next to the main door of the Town Clerk’s Office until midnight of the due date. Postmarks are accepted as evidence of timely payment. Payments received after the due date will be charged an 8% penalty.
