Utility Billing is a Division of the Finance Department, and manages approximately 3,500 active billing accounts for the following services:
Sign up for Service: Customers who need to sign up for utility services need to complete an application for services, pay a $10 administration fee and a $75 deposit. The deposit may be waived for customers who have established good credit with the City.
Sewer Charges: Sewer charges include a base charge and use charge. The use charge is based on users average monthly water consumption for the previous months of November, December, January, February, March and April (6 months) as read from the customer's water meter. These are updated annually and new averages are reflected on bills the City mails out each May. Customers have the option to "opt-out" of the sewer averaging method and have the use charged based on actual usage each month even through the summer. To do this the customer must complete the Sewer Opt-out/in Form and submit it to the Finance Department. The customer will remain on this method until requesting a change using the same form.
