Requests For Residential Utility Services
To request utility services a utility application must be completed for each location. Your social security number, photo identification and date of birth are requested for the purpose of verifying your identity and to perform a credit check. There is no statutory or other authority requiring you to give your social security number, but if you elect not to disclose it you may need to satisfy a deposit. Deposits are also required when an applicant's credit history warrants the collection of a deposit. The deposit for electric is $200.00 and the deposit for water only is $50.00.
Requests for Commercial Utility Services
Accounts established for commercial service will require a Federal Tax ID number and the signature of an authorized representative. Accounts established for non-incorporated business' will require the Social Security number and signature of the individual operating the business. Deposits for commercial accounts are based on two month's average bill for the location.
Service Requests for All Utilities
Any request for utility service, or a request to add another service connection by a customer will be handled as a request for all services applicable to the location. All electric meter locations providing permanent service within the corporate limits shall be assessed a garbage fee and issued a rollout container, unless their solid waste requirements are alternatively met by Town dumpster service. Such locations will also be issued a recycling container and charged a recycling fee. Customers in residential apartments served by dumpsters shall also receive a recycling container and be assessed a fee.
