The Town of Ulysses reads water meters and sends bills quarterly. Meters are read on (or near) Feb. 16, May 16, Aug. 16, and Nov. 16.

Residents have 30 days to make their water payments without penalty. After 30 days, there is a ten percent (10%) penalty applied to the unpaid balance. It is the property owner or landlord's responsibility to make sure payments are made on their properties.

In the event that there are any water bills which have been delinquent for a period of at least sixty (60) days as of November 1 of any year, the Collection Clerk will report the names of the defaulting persons to the Tompkins County Tax Assessor, and the Tax Assessor will be directed to relevy the outstanding water balance to the property owners tax bill.

Water payments can be made by mail or in person at the Ulysses Town Hall. Payments can be made by cash, check or credit card.

The Ulysses Town Hall has a night drop box that is checked daily for any payments or correspondences. It is mounted to the left of the front door.

If you are moving, let us know so that we can do a final meter read before the new tenants move in.
