The Town Fee Schedule, enacted each year by the Board of Trustees, governs the charging of fees. These amounts can change from year to year, so please check the fee schedule or application before writing a check.
Nederland water rates are also set each year by the Board of Trustees. Residents are billed quarterly and businesses are billed monthly for water.
In response to COVID-19 impact, some temporary changes to ‘PAYMENT OPTIONS & GUIDELINES” have been enacted. Please click the link below:
PAYMENT OPTIONS & GUIDELINES
Utility Payments may be made by Cash, Personal Check, Money Order, or Cashier’s Check. Payments need to be received in Town Hall by 5pm on the specified due date to be considered timely (regardless of postmark date when mailed).
Town Hall is located at 45 W. 1st St.,
and the mailing address is PO Box 396, Nederland, CO 80466-0396.
- Checks, Money Orders, and Cashier’s Checks can be remitted 24/7 into the black “Payment” Drop Box by the front door of Town Hall. It is not recommended to deposit cash into the “Payment” Drop Box.
- Payments can be set up to auto draft (so that they’re never late). Please fill out the ACH Authorization Form (link below).
- Cash payments should always be made during Town Hall business hours; it is not recommended that cash be deposited into the Payment Drop Box.
- If a payment due date lands on a Saturday or Sunday, any payment collected from the Payment Drop Box by 6:00am the following Monday, will be considered on time. If paying with cash, payment must be made the preceding Friday.
- On the rare occasion that Town Hall has closed before 5pm on a business day, and which is also a specified payment due date, cash payments would need to be submitted before 5pm the next business day.
- At this time, the only option for credit/debit card payments is through the eBill Payment System. This system requires an initial pre-registration before you can make a payment. You will need your 4-digit account number (do not leave out any leading zeros) and the system generated PIN which is tied to your account number. This PIN is printed on your bill. This payment process is facilitated by PayPal (you do not need a PayPal account) and you will incur a convenience fee (currently about 3.5% but is/can be subject to change). The fee will be calculated before finalizing your payment, which will give you the opportunity to cancel the transaction should you choose. You will only be able to view bills that are generated and uploaded to the system subsequent to your registration.

RETURNED CHECK POLICY
If utility payments made with a physical check or an ACH Auto-Draft have been returned by the bank (i.e., Insufficient Funds) two times within a year of each other, no personal checks will be accepted for a one (1) year period and the customer will not be eligible to utilize/participate in the ACH Auto-Draft program for a period of one (1) year.
