Due to recent events concerning the spread of Coronavirus, the City of Mattoon is suspending utility shut offs for nonpayment of water and sewer bills. Late payment fees will also be waived during this time. Water and Sewer customers will still owe for their usage and payment arrangements for all unpaid bills will be made at a later date.
