Activating and Stopping Utility Service

Activating Utility Service

  • Application for utility service will be in writing with proper identification presented. 
  • Tenants signing up for service must provide proof of tenancy.
  • All owners of property, however, shall remain ultimately and legally liable for the payment of any and all utility charges against the premises to which such utility service has been furnished or is available to the maximum extent allowed by law.
  • A $25 administration fee will be paid at date of activation. The administration fee shall be nonrefundable and nontransferable.

Stop Utility Service

Contact our office to stop utility service and close the utility account.

In most cases, the water service will be disconnected at time of stopping service, unless the owner of the property contacts our office prior to stopping service. 

Temporary Service Disconnection

Contact our office to temporarily disconnect service.

Temporary service disconnection is available for account owners who vacate the home for more than 2 consecutive months.  Water service will be disconnected and all commodities except for storm drain will not be charged.

Reactivation of a Temporary Disconnect Account

For reactivation of a temporarily disconnected utility account, please contact our office to schedule reconnection to service.  A $15 water turn-on fee will be applied to the utility account once water is turned back on.

For accounts disconnected from service due to non-payment, once payment is made to restore service, notify the utility department with request to reconnect service.
