(Updated July 2016)

Town ordinances require the payment of a $150 deposit to begin utility service.  Property owners residing in their own homes may have the deposit refunded after 12 months if timely payments have been made.  Renters are required to maintain a deposit as long as they rent.  Property owners of rental properties are also required to maintain a permanent deposit with the town.  We cannot accept credit references in lieu of a deposit.

Electric charges are based on a monthly service fee of $15.50/$18.50/$26.50/$33.50 depending on type of service and then billed at 11.5 cents per kilowatt.  Meters are read around the 20th of each month and bills are mailed by the 25th of the month.

All other town utilities are charged at a flat monthly rate:

  • Water is charged at $28.00 residential and $30.00 business a month.
  • Sewer is charged at $16.00 residential and $22.00 business a month.
  • Garbage is charged at $20.00 residential and business rates based on size per month.

Dumpster Etiquette – Only grass and leaves may be placed in the green dumpsters; all other allowable trash and yard waste goes in the brown dumpsters.  Non-acceptable waste such as asphalt, cement, metal pipes, rocks, sod, paints, tires, toxic chemicals and wood should not be placed in either dumpster.

Utility payments not received by the 10th of the month are delinquent and will be assessed a late fee of $2.00 or 1% of the outstanding bill, whichever is greater, if not paid in full by the 20th of the month.  Accounts more than 30 days past due will be charged interest at the rate of 1.5% monthly and will be shutoff for lack of payment if arrangements are not made with town hall for payment.  Accounts shutoff for nonpayment will also be charged a reconnect fee of $80 during normal business hours or $150 during other hours.

SPEED LIMIT ON ALL RESIDENTIAL STREETS IS 20 MPH.

BUILDING PERMITS ARE REQUIRED ON ALL EXTERIOR CHANGES TO PROPERTY.

Dog tags are required for all dogs within city limits ($5.00 on neutered & spayed dogs - $7.50 on all others).  $75.00 kennel license for 4 or more dogs.
