Waste Water

We collect and process all of the town's waste water for treatment at our own sewer treatment plant. The present rate for waste water is $6.00 per 1,000 gallons plus a monthly $20.00 availability fee.

Utility Billing

Meters are read on or around the 20th of each month. Bills are mailed on the last working day of each month for the services used the previous month. Bills are due on the Due Date that is printed on your bill each month. A penalty of either $10 or $20 dollars depending on the services you receive is added to past due accounts on the next business date after the Due Date printed on your bill. Service is discontinued on the Cut-Off date printed on your bill of each month for all unpaid accounts and a $50.00 restoration fee is added.

How To Establish Services

To understand what is required in order to establish services you must read either the In-Town Utility Services or Out-Of-Town Utility Services documentation listed below. The In-Town Utility Services document is for all residences or businesses within the city limits. The Out-Of-Town Utility Services document is only for residences outside of the city limits. To establish your services, you must apply in person at the Town Hall, 6217 Main St to complete a utility service agreement. The minimum deposit required is $166.25 for In-Town customers and $150.00 for Out-Of-Town customers. If any additional amount is required you will be notified at the time you attempt to establish services. Services will not be turned on until all upfront fees and deposits are met. We do accept Discover, Visa, and MasterCard debit/credit cards. You must bring a valid picture ID and Social Security Card, or other legal documents which includes your taxpayer ID#. Please bring a copy of your lease agreement or closing document with you. For your convenience we have provided the above documentation on this website.
