Utility Billing

Starting A New Service

Please fill out a Water Service Agreement and mail or bring, along with a deposit, to City Hall at 960 Early Boulevard. Service is usually scheduled within 24 hours after receipt of application and deposit. It is recommended that someone be at the property when service is to be turned on. This will prevent any potential flooding or damage due to open faucets or leaking pipes.
