FOIA Form & Policy adopted by the Wakefield City Council 6/8/2015
Please click for a Building Permit Application. Building Permits are required to all structural changes, including roofs. No building permits are required for replacement of windows or doors that are the same size or siding.
The City's Building Inspector is Butch Saari and his contact number is (906) 932-5979.
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.
Utility bills can be paid at the Utility Office between the hours of 8:00 & 12:00 or mailed to us at 509 Sunday Lake St. There is a drop box near the Building entrance for your convenience. Do NOT use cash for payments put in the drop box.
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.
