Utility Notices

Billing Dates

Bills are mailed on the 1st of each month and are due by the 20th of the month. A $10 penalty is added after this due date and service must be discontinued on the 6th day of delinquency in accordance with Council regulations.

Payment Options

Utility bills can be paid at City Hall or mailed to us at 311 Sunday Lake St. There is a night deposit drop box on the south side of City Hall for your convenience. Do NOT use cash for payments put in the drop box.

High Utility Bills?

Large culprits for high water readings are toilets: If your water bill is unusually high, please check your toilets. This can be done by putting a few drops of food coloring in the tank and not using the toilet for a few hours. If you see color in the toilet after no use, your toilet IS leaking. You may not hear it, but it can be leaking up to 20,000 gallons of water a MONTH.

If your electric is running high, please check your water heater first (if you are not using space heaters). Typically you can see a pattern of your electrical usage gradually inclining when a heating element is not working properly.
