Unable to make payment?

If you are unable to pay your bill by the 15th of the month, please contact our Collections department at (605) 697-8424.  Brookings Municipal Utilities (BMU) may allow you to negotiate reasonable arrangements for payment.  If allowed, those arrangements will be mutually agreed upon by you and BMU, and then recorded on your account.  BMU does not apply a late payment charge for bills paid after the due date.  However, repeated late payments will damage your credit rating with our company.  Unpaid past-due bills may result in your utility services being disconnected.
