General Information

Utility bills are mailed on the last working day of the month. Payment is due on or before the 15th of each month.  To view your utility bill online: ** View Utility Bill  **

When the 15th falls on a weekend or holiday, net payment will be accepted without a penalty the following business day. Delinquent accounts are charged a penalty based on 10% of electric, water, wastewater, stormwater, and refuse charges. According to chapter 3, subdivision 8 of the city code, we are required to notify property owners of any delinquency.

At City Hall, 227 S. Front Street, there is a drive-up payment box by the flag pole for your convenience. 

Automatic bank debit plans are available. Click here for the form to sign up for Automatic Payment.  Form may be mailed or dropped off at City Hall.


Electric & Water
Meter Readings

Electric & water meters are read each month starting around the 8th of the month.  Meter readers read for approximately 10 days.

Changes in Billing

If you are moving to another address, please let us know at least one day in advance so we can set up a special meter reading. Please make arrangements to be home when your final meter reading occurs so we can read both the inside and outside meters. Meters are not read on Saturday, Sunday, or holidays.
A $100.00 deposit is required of all renters or owners if you do not own the actual property on which the residence is located. This deposit will be returned to you when you move from the property and your final bill is paid in full. Interest on your deposit will be credited to your account on your January billing for your interest through January 1st of each year.
