Receiving Utility Bills by Email
To receive Utility Bills by email, please get in touch with the Utility Billing Office at 940-761-7414.
Utility Billing and Collections is responsible for customer services, including new customers, billing, missing meter lids, and new service line connections. For questions, please call 940-761-7414.
The division also handles turning on/off water utility orders, reading water meters, establishing new services, billing for water, sewer, and refuse, collecting payments, and arranging for a field inspection.
How to Establish Service
To establish a water account, customers can fill out an online application here or stop by the Utility Collections office at 1300 Seventh Street to make a deposit. New accounts require identification to protect the customer from someone else establishing an account in his/her name. A representative can establish the account by using their identification and providing copies of the responsible party's identification.
Residential deposits are $100.00 for single-family dwellings. Multi-family dwellings are $75.00 per unit when served by one meter. Minimum business deposits are $110.00 for businesses with low water usage. Sprinkler meters are $75. Other business deposits are calculated based on comparable business use applied to current water, sewer, and refuse rates.
