Water Services and Billing


  • Before you move, call City Hall or email us to give the office your closing date and forwarding address, for your final bill. You will be charged for usage only up to your closing date. We do not shut the water off at the street.
  • For a mobile home trailer, call City Hall to give the office your closing date and forwarding address, for your final bill. If there is no balance on your account your deposit will be refunded.  If there is a balance, it is deducted from the deposit and the remainder is forwarded to your new address.


New Residents

  • New water/sewer customers must come into City Hall (100 East 9th Avenue) during regular business hours (Monday - Friday, 8:00 am to 4:00 pm) to complete a water contract.
  • If you live in a mobile home trailer that is billed individually and not to the park, you must place a $250.00 deposit for your water service.  This is refundable upon departure, provided there is no balance on your account.  You will also need to bring in a copy of your Lease agreement with the park.



  • Water/sewer meters are read monthly and bills mailed out following the readings. The bills are in arrears so you are being billed for water/sewer/refuse that has already been used.  Due dates are clearly marked on the bill and penalties apply to delinquent bills. See Water Bill Procedures
  • For rates see Schedule of Fees 
  • If you see a large increase in usage: See High Water Usage
  • No allowances are given on the sewer bill for leaks or pools.
