ABOUT YOUR WATER/SEWER/SANITATION/MOSQUITO BILL
Water bills are mailed on the 1st of each month. Due by the 20th of each month.
After the 20th, a 10% penalty will be added to the balance. The bills must be paid by the end of the month, or service will be disconnected. If you receive a doorhanger for an unpaid bill, a $5.00 service charge will be added to the balance.
Bills can be made in person at the City Hall with check, cash, debit or credit card. We also have a drive thru window and a night deposit slot at the drivethru. If you would like to set your payments up on automatic draft, request the application and return it to Sandi Griffin. The bills will be drafted on the 10th of each month. You will still receive your monthly bill so you will know how much your draft will be on the 10th. There is ADDITIONAL CHARGE FOR THIS SERVICE.
If you have questions about your bill, call Holly at 870-81-3386, Monday-Friday 8:00-4:00.
NEW SERVICE: Please come to City Hall at 220 Elder Street to complete an application for new service. You will need a photo I.D. The deposit for water is $75.00 and is refundable when you move. There is a $10.00 non-refundable sanitation charge on all new accounts. Deposit for new service is a total of $85.00. You can pay by cash, check, credit or debit card. Normally new service can be turned on within the hour (before 4:00pm). Someone must be at the property before the water is turned on. This is to ensure there are no leaks inside that may not be detected.
