Water Rates

There is a $100.00 deposit required to establish a new water service account.  Water must be turned on in the same name of the person responsible for payment.  The deposit must be paid in full before the water will be turned on.

NO water turn-on OR turn-offs will be made on Saturday, Sunday or Holidays.

Most houses and apartments within City limits are charged on a flat rate based on lot size. 
  • Residences on lots up to 41 feet in width or 4,000 square feet in size, pay $44.90 per month;
  • Residences on lots from 41 to 50 feet in width or 4,001 to 5,000 square feet in size, pay $50.76 per month;
  • Residences on lots over 50 feet in width or 5,000 square feet in size, pay $50.76 per month plus $1.05 for each additional foot over 50 feet in width or for each additional 100 square feet over.
Residences with meters are charged a minimum monthly rate of $44.90 for the first 600 cubic feet and $1.20 for each 100 additional cubic feet per month. Hydrant meter services shall be charged the same usage rates as regular meters.

All utility service bills are generated on the last day of the month and are payable upon receipt.  Bills become delinquent if not paid by the 15th of the month.  Utility bills not paid within 45 days become subject to turn-off.

The following penalties and fees have been approved by the City Council and apply to delinquent accounts:

15-Day Penalty ($5)

The due date for the utility bill is the 15th of the month.  For example, a bill sent out June 30th would be due by July 15th.  This will keep the account current.

45-Day Penalty

(Shut-Off Notice,$10.00)

Bills that remain unpaid for 45 days will be charged a penalty of $10.00 and have a shut-off notice mailed to the address on file.  For example, a bill sent out on June 30th that remains unpaid until July 15th will have a $10.00 penalty charged to their account.  If payment is not received by the date on the notice, the water will be subject to being shut off.
