Water

New water rates will go into effect on January 1, 2019, you can find new rates here.

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.
