Water Clerk

From the Desk of the Water Clerk, Megan Peel

The City Water Clerk is responsible for utility billing operations. The Water Clerk will also assist the public with utility billing questions and other problems.

The Water Clerk prepares utility bills (water/sewer/waste bills) by printing them as required and ensuring they are sent out via the postal service, follows up with delinquent collections and assists those customers when possible to make arrangements for payment, handles shut off notices, and maintains the database to record all transactions and meter readings.

The Water Clerk will also assist the City Treasurer and Clerk with administering day to day operations within the City. This includes working the front counter, assisting with payroll processing, assisting with bank deposits, and balancing of cash drawers.

If you need to change the name and/or billing address for utility bills, please provide this information in writing to the Water Clerk's office. For your convenience, there is a notice of change form located under the forms section of the website. 

 

Utility Bills

The City offers full service water and sewer utilities to our residents. If you have any comments, questions or concerns regarding water and sewer billing, usage, metering or infrastructure, please contact City Hall.  The City does offer a program for homeowners renting their property. As part of the program, the renter must submit a deposit (Contact City Offices for deposit amount), a copy of their lease and the renter and owner must fill out a Water Affidavit. This program protects the homeowner from a lien on their property due to unpaid water/sewer bills by renters. The deposit is applied to the final bill when the renter moves out. Please contact City Hall for more information.

Water meters are read monthly around the 25th of every month. Please make sure that water meters have a clear area around them in case of repairs.
