Setting Up a New Account

Please bring or include photo proof of identification with your application.

When you apply for service and have not held service in your name, you will be charged a security deposit ($100.00) as well as a non-refundable New Account set up fee ($25.00). The set-up fee is to cover the costs entailed in setting up your new service and is billed on your first month's bill.

If the water service is off, you will also be charged a $25.00 water service turn on fee. This charge will show up on your first bill.

If you move within a year and continue to be a City Service customer, your deposit will carry over to your new address. Your final bill must be paid in full before you can have City Services at another location.

If you move within a year and are no longer a customer the Security Deposit will be applied to the balance due and a refund will be issued for any credit balance left on the account.

There is a $25.00 Moving Fee that will be assessed each and every time you move. If you are moving within the City’s limits, please submit a check for $25.00. This fee will be added to the first bill at your new address.

Water Meters & Leaks

Water Filter Maintenance

Water meters are mechanical devices that measure the flow of water entering your home. Your meter is read at least once per quarter. Each month, you receive a Water/Sewer bill based on the amount of water you use. The meter only records water used.

The Finding Water Leaks brochure gives you quick and easy ways to find the source of a leak. For example, to ensure that your toilet is not the culprit of your high bill, place a few drops of blue or green food coloring in the toilet tank. Wait about 10 minutes. If any color is in the bowl, you have a leaky toilet.
