The monthly residential utility bill from the City includes water, sewer, storm sewer and garbage. Bills are mailed on the last working day of each month and are due by the 10th of the next month. There is an after-hours drop slot located in the entry of City Hall. If you do not receive a bill please contact city hall. If the bill is not paid by the 10th, a ten-percent delinquent charge is added to the bill. Bills unpaid by the 10th of the next month will result in a disconnect notice, with shut-off six working days after. A $15.00 disconnection fee applies to accounts shut off for nonpayment.
Water Deposits: A water deposit of $45.00 must be paid and an application for water must be filled out before service will be turned on. The deposit is held for one year and if all bills are paid by the 10th of each month it will be returned. If bills are not paid by the 10th, the deposit will be held until service is discontinued.
Garbage Hauling: The City contracts with Art Daisy of Daisy Hauling (712-464-3680) to collect residential garbage and recycling. Please contact him directly to find out your day and time of pickup. Billing is done through the City and is on your monthly water bill.
Yard Waste: Yard waste (such as leaves and tree limbs) may be burned during the authorized open burning period, after a burn permit is obtained from City Hall. The City also offers a yard waste disposal site approximately 2 miles south of Hwy 175 on Harris Avenue. The site is open approximately April-November, sunrise to sunset, 7 days/week.
