Paradise Irrigation District Update (as of 7/22/19)
Advisories Lifted: 90

Annual Lien Processing - Water bill payments due by July 24th. PID staff have not heard from several customers regarding their water bill balances (many of which are pre-fire balances), and now these balances must be transferred to their property tax bill. We understand some people might have moved and not left a forwarding address - so we are reaching out online to help get the word out to as many people as possible. Details below:
The Paradise Irrigation District has an ann ual process to ensure fee collection from all property owners including, if necessary, placing a lien on the property. Liens are filed once per year (usually in August) with the Butte County Assessor’s Office and are attached to the property taxes as a special assessment.
Once a utility lien has been filed with Butte County, collection of the lien is handled by the Butte County office of the Auditor Controller.
Customers with outstanding balances who wish to avoid the lien process, can pay the amounts due to the Paradise Irrigation District before July 24th.
Payments can be made online at mypidbill.com.
