The Utilities Customer Service is responsible for processing new connects, disconnect requests, transfers, balance inquiry, payment extensions and agreements, leak adjustments, insufficient checks, new meter taps, and construction portable water meters. We also answer all customer service calls related to billing on behalf of Waste Connections questions.

All customers requesting new service must fill out a Utility Application Form and bring it to City Hall during normal business hours before an account is created. Please attach two (2) forms of I.D. One of which should be in the form of a valid state or federal government issued identification card, such as a state issued driver's license, state issued identification card, a U.S. government issued passport or visa, or a U.S. military identification card, all of which must contain a photograph of the customer AND one other form which may be a birth certificate, voter registration card, or Native American tribal document.
A deposit that is refundable is required when the account is finalized.
