Water Utility Connection
To open a water account, you come to City Hall office at 128 Main Street and request service. You bring a valid driver's license along with your social security card. A water deposit is $150.00 plus a $40.00 administrative, a total fee of $190.00 which must be paid in full before your service will be turned on. Same day turn on is available for applicants if request is before 2 pm.
No person with a previous delinquent balance can open an account without first paying the delinquent amount. The City will not open an account in any name if we have reason to believe that a person who has an unpaid balance will be living at that address.
The attached paperwork must also be completed. You may print off the following documents and bring the completed forms with you to City Hall or we have copies available.
