Deposit Requirement for Tenants
Customers who are tenants at a service location are required to pay a utility deposit of $150.00, payable by cash, money order or credit card. Personal checks are not accepted for the deposit. Along with the deposit, a Contract for Utility Services is required that has been filled out and signed by both the landlord and all residents that are on the lease. Once the contract and the deposit have been received by our office, services are able to be put in the tenants name.
Mobile Home Park Vacant Lot Reporting
Prior to the first day of each month, the mobile home park manager or designee shall file a report of the number of vacant lots in the park. A vacant lot is one on which there is no home, trailer or structure. The filing of an erroneous report or the failure to timely file a report will result in a fee of $200.00, which will be assessed on the utility account of the mobile home park.
Please contact the Utility Billing office if you suspect a problem with your water meter or your utility service. City staff is available to investigate your concern and will advise you of the findings and resolutions.
