Utility Customer Service
The Utility Billing Division, located in the east wing of City Hall, is responsible for all related services including water, wastewater, garbage, recycling, and yard waste. Their goal is to provide the best possible service while ensuring that all charges are accurately reflected in the customer's monthly statement.
Residential deposits for new accounts are required in the amount of $40 for water only or $85 for water and wastewater combined. The deposit for a garbage-only customer is $40. You are also required to pay a non-refundable $10 turn-on or $5 transfer fee depending on the situation. The deposit may be refunded after two years of on-time payment history. Please note, it is unlawful for anyone other than an authorized City employee to turn on the water. Penalties will be assessed for any theft of services or damaged water meter(s).
