The City can only pick up limbs and leaves. All other materials are to be disposed of by the resident (i.e. taken to the landfill).**
How could I have used this much water?
You may not have - the numbers on your meter may have been transposed or hard to read. You could possibly have a leaky toilet or faucet that's difficult to detect. Just call the office and we'll work with you to solve the problem.
What do I do if I am experiencing low pressure?
Check your meter and the surrounding area for possible leaks. Next, call our office and report low pressure for your area.
Why do I have a previous balance when I know I sent in my payment?
We may have received it after the due date or we may not have received it at all. Call our office and we will help you solve the problem.
Why is my water discolored?
A repair could have been completed recently allowing air to enter the line, causing the milky look.
Will the Street Department pick up my leaves and tree limbs?
Yes. The Street Department will pick up leaves and limbs. The leaf vacuum truck runs from fall until early spring. When not in use, leaves must be bagged up. All limbs must be less than 4 feet long and less than 4 inches in diameter. If you would like to get on the special pick up list, please call City Hall.
