As a full service city we provide the community with electricity, conservation programs, garbage collection, recycling, wastewater (sewer), stormwater services, and water at very competitive rates and in compliance with all state and federal standards.
Utility bills are sent out every month to approximately 10,600 households and businesses. The billing cycles vary, so the date your payment is due could be different from your neighbor's. On the first bill there is a $25 service charge for electric and water connection. This is a one-time connect charge.
Currently the city's meter readers use hand-held microcomputers to record your meter readings. These devices directly feed the information into the city's central computer, eliminating an extra step in preparing your bill and making meter reading faster and more accurate. They also store information about a meter location such as how to access the meter, if there are pets on the property to be aware of, and if there is a day sleeper at the home.
