BENTON TOWNSHIP Folks who don't pay their water bills in Benton Township will now face more than just dry faucets.

The township board approved a late fee policy. The Herald Palladium reports customers will be charged $50 if they don't pay within 30 days of receiving a shut-off notice. That's in addition to any fees the township charges when they turn off the water or turn it back on.

The policy is meant to reduce the labor costs of dealing with repeated non-payers.
