The monthly residential utility bill from the City includes water, sewer, storm sewer and garbage. A water deposit of $100.00 must be paid and an application for water service must be filled out before the service will be turned on. Bills are mailed on the last working day of each month and are due by the 20th 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 20th, a ten-percent delinquent charge is added to the bill. Bills unpaid by the 20th of the month will be considered delinquent and result in a disconnect notice with shut-off six days later. A $30.00 shut-off fee will be charged if an employee is sent out to shut off the service, even if payment is made at that time. Another $30.00 turn-on fee will be required to restore the service, as well as the past amount due. All utilities in your name are your responsibility until the City is notified that you are moving and a final bill is generated.
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. Commercial usage is billed through Daisy Hauling.
