Customer Deposits
A security deposit of $150.00 is collected from all customers establishing city services.  Deposits are held for 3 years, and with good payment history, will be refunded to the current balance or applied to the final bill. 

Billing Information

Water meters are read each month.  The reading date depends on which “Zone” a property resides in.  Once the bills are prepared, they are mailed to the customers and are due 21 days after mailing.  Due dates vary depending on the zone. 

Unpaid balances will receive a 5% penalty and could result in possible notification of delinquency.

Attention Renters!  Landlords will be notified of any delinquencies.  Accounts revert back to the property owner on the third delinquency.  Click here for full delinquency policy.
