Utility bills are mailed on or about the 20th of each month and are due by the 5th of the following month. Payment can be mailed to City Hall, or placed in the drop box at City Hall. We accept check, money order or cashiers check. NO Cash. Delinquent notices are sent out on or about the 6th of the month with a late fee of $25.00 being assessed. If the delinquent amount is not paid by the date on the notice, disconnection will take place the following day. Disconnected service will not be restored until the delinquent balance plus a $200.00 reconnection fee is paid (between 8 a.m. and 4p.m. Monday thru Friday). There are no weekend reconnections made.
A $200.00 deposit is required from all new residents. That deposit will be refunded when service is discontinued and all accounts are paid in full.
Garbage is collected every Thursday and recycling boxes are picked up every other Thursday.
