To obtain water service contact City Hall, 562-8005. If you have a question or concern about your bill call 562-8005. The application for water service is available online, but new customers must present a photo ID at City Hall.
Prior to connection, reconnection or delivery of utility service, each customer is required to pay a $125.00 utility security deposit as a condition of receiving utility service. The deposit shall not bear interest. To set up a new account, a customer must also pay a non-refundable $25 initiation fee. Existing account transfers require a non-refundable $15 transfer fee.
Utility service deposits may be transferred or applied to a new residence or location if the customer relocates, completes the necessary application and satisfies the applicable fee and any additional required deposits.
Upon termination of utility service, any deposit shall be credited against the final utility service bill and the balance, if any, shall be returned to the customer.
The water bill includes a sewer usage charge based upon water consumption. A 10% penalty will be assessed on the bill if not paid by the 15th of each month. Water service will be disconnected if the bill is not paid by the first of the new month. A $15.00 service charge is added for late payment.
The City offers an automatic bill payment option for water/sewer bills that can make your payment directly from your checking account.
