While the city makes every effort to ensure that utility bills are accurate, errors do occur and should be brought to our attention. Customer service representatives are available at the City Hall during regular business hours to answer questions or resolve problems. They can also be reached by phone at 970-240-1400. The Utility Billing Hotline, 970-240-1401, can also be used to obtain information about city utilities and sanitation services.
A common reason for unusually high utility bill charges is increased water usage due to water leaks, malfunctioning toilets, or summertime landscape irrigation. The city reviews water usage to determine if it is higher than normal. If it is, we have our servicemen check for a leak. If you feel that there is an error on your bill, please call (970) 240-1400 to speak with a customer service representative.
