We are now able to accept credit card payments! You can also choose to set up auto-pay. Call the city office to get started.

Bills are issued the first of each month and payment is due on or before the 25th of each month.

Payments received on or before the 25th are on-time. Any payment received after the 25th is considered a late payment and is assessed a $10.00 late fee.

If two months elapse without payment, the account enters shut-off status and is assessed a $50.00 penalty on the 26th day of the second month. In the event the water is shut off, a $25.00 fee for water shut off and an additional $25.00 fee to reinstate the water is charged.

Payment can be mailed or paid in person at our drop slot or office; (If paying with cash, please refrain from bringing large bills… we do not keep much cash on hand, and may be unable to return the required change for large bills)
