Utility deposits are required for anyone wishing to connect water service at an existing location.  Residential accounts are charged a $75.00 deposit inside city limits and $100.00 outside city limits plus a $10.00 connection fee.  Commercial accounts are  charged according to the size of their meters plus a $10.00 connection fee.  The installation of a water tap will be required if there is no existing connection, amount due depends on the size of your tap.  Utility deposits are refundable when water services are disconnected.

To disconnect your service you must come into our office and present a picture ID.  Your name must be on this account in order to disconnect services.

Utility billing is done for a  twenty-five to thirty day period.  If you have concerns on the accuracy of meter readings; we recommend that you take a meter reading yourself in order to compare it to the meter reading on your bill.  Should it show any discrepancies, please feel free to contact the utility billing office.

Payment due dates are printed on your utility bill and are due on the 15th of each month.  On the 16th of each month, a 10% penalty is added to your unpaid balance.  Customers requiring more time to pay the bills must contact the utility department and sign an extension agreement.  You can obtain only one extension in a twelve-month period.  This extension request must be done in person at the utility office with your picture ID.

Tag fees are $10.00 for each account with an unpaid balance after the 15th of each month.  This is for the hot pink tag that is put on your door to remind you that your bill is now past due and subject to disconnection.

Delinquent accounts that have been disconnected for non-payment will be charged reconnection fees in addition to the balance owed.  For the first disconnection, you will be charged an additional $25.00 for the second $35.00 and for three or more $50.00 will be charged to your account.  The entire bill plus your reconnection fee must be paid once your service has been disconnected in order to have your water services restored.
