Application for Service
Applications for service are used when you need to have electric, water, sewer and trash utilities at your residence. Application for new utilities requires proof of identification and a $300 deposit when the application is submitted. Once this information is received, then the new services will be turned on through the City Office. The $300 deposit is refunded to the customer after 1 year of service provided that the bills were consistently paid in a timely manner. Use this form to sign up for utilities.
Utility services are charged monthly, and payment is due to the City Office by the 20th of each month. You can pay at the City Office, put a payment in the drop box outside the City Office door, or via credit card. You can also set up automatic payments to come out of your bank account on either the 4th or the 20th of the month by completing the application and submitting it to the City Office.

Sewer: Minimum of $16 plus $0.20 per every 1000 gallons used (Computed Annually)
