Election Date Change
On September 21, 2017 a resolution was passed and became effective on November 10, 2017, to amend the date of the Town of Centreville elections to the first Monday in October. The reason behind this change was to allow any newly elected Council Member the ability to participate in the full budget process rather than begin office in the middle of the process.
Along with this amendment, the date candidates are required to file for nomination was changed to the first Monday in August and the hours that polls will be open was changed to 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Therefore, the 2018 Town of Centreville election will take place on Monday, October 1, 2018 and the last day to file for nomination is Monday, August 6, 2018 by 4:00 p.m.
If you have any questions regarding these changes, please feel free to contact Carolyn Brinkley, Town Clerk at 410-758-1180 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Updated Utility Bill On-Line Payment System
The Town of Centreville recently updated the utility bill on-line payment system. Residents will now be required to enter a Utility Account ID number as well as a Utility Account PIN. Both numbers are located on your utility bill. These are new privacy features for the benefit of our citizens. The link can be found on the Town’s website at www.townofcentreville.org and is located in the top right hand corner of the home page.
Also, this updated on-line system allows partial payments to be made whereas the old system only allowed full payments. As long as the full amount of your utility bill is paid by the due date, no late fees will be applied.
