Water

Water meters are located in either the front yards close to the street or in the alleys.

Water meters are not to be turned on or off by a customer or plumber, only by the City Crew. Please contact the City Office if a meter needs turned on or off for any reason. A ticket may be issued by the Police Department if a meter is turned on by anyone other than the City Crew.

Every year the City sends out the Consumer Confidence Reports to every residence.
