City utilities include water, sewer, and trash (contracted through Waste Connections).
A deposit is required for new residents. Renters must pay $100 before service is turned on. Homeowners must pay $50. When the bill is paid on or before the 15th of the month for 12 consecutive months, the deposit will be credited to the account along with interest.
In addition, a one-time connection fee of $20.00 is implemented when accounts are opened or changed.
Bills are due by the 15th of each month, after which a 10 percent penalty will be applied. Bills unpaid by the 25th of the month will be subject to disconnection. There will then be a $30.00 disconnect/reconnect service charge added to the account. The account must be paid in full by cash, money order or debit/credit card, including the $30.00 service charge before the water can be reconnected.
