Utility Billing


Utility Billing, a division of the Finance Department, collects fees for City water, sewer, and trash services. Fees collected for these services are placed into enterprise funds that are used solely to fund each activity.

The city reads water meters during the last week of the month. Bills for water, sewer, and trash are mailed during the first week of the next month. Utility bill payments are due on the 28th of each month.

New service, changes to service, and termination of service can be requested via an online form.
