Utility Level-Pay Plan


May is sign-up month.  The levelized amount is determined by averaging the customer's last 12 months' utility bills.  The months to be averaged are:  January through May of the current year and June through December of the prior year.  The level pay amount is valid for 11 months and every May the account is balanced and re-averaged for the next plan year.  Details and sign-up forms are available at City Hall.

Also for your convenience, complete the Electronic Billing Application to have your utility bill emailed to you.  Return the completed form to the City Clerk's Office. The form can also be mailed to P.O. Box 312 or placed in one of the payment drop boxes.  The Electronic Billing Application is available by clicking the link below.
