Water and Sewer Bills

 

Water and sewer bills are due by the 15th of each month to avoid a 10 percent penalty charge.  The City offers several bill pay options listed below.

A $10 service charge is assessed any time it is necessary to connect or disconnect service for any reason other than for the convenience of the City. This charge also applies to the transfer of an existing account to a new customer where service is not disconnected and to termination of service for non-payment of the account. This fee is charged per service call (the fee is $20 for customers outside the city limits).

   

Water Service Deposit

 

A water service deposit of $100 is required by customers who are renting. Payment of said deposit is required at the time of application for service. Deposits are held until the final bill is issued; the deposit is then applied to the final bill charges and any remainder refunded by check upon approval by the city council.
