Utility Billing

Utility bills are sent out quarterly, through the City's Finance Department. Your utility bill includes fees for water, sanitary sewer, street lighting services, environmental resources, and state testing.

The City has a contract with RMR Services to read residential meters for billing. The meter readers wear identifying clothing and drive specially marked cars. Meter readers record usage from the outside readout device - they do not need to enter your home.
