You will also need a copy of your lease to activate a utility account. When your account is closed, your deposit, if greater than the utilities due, will then be refunded. Payment is accepted by cash, check, or money order.

If your Electric or Water Utilities are shut off for non-payment, the following applies:

1. All open balances on electric and / or water accounts are due and payable at this time.

2. There is a reconnection fee of $50 before 2PM and $125 after 2PM for electric, and $50 before 2PM and $125 after 2PM for water

3. Only cash, money order, CREDIT CARD, or certified funds will be accepted. No Personal Checks.

5. After normal business hours, 4:15 PM, payment (CASH only) is accepted at the Police Station, 61 Main Street. Police Dispatchers will collect the money in full, and the Police will call the Utility Department to turn on the utilities. Any questions you have can only be answered by the Utility Office during normal business hours.

6. IMPORTANT, if your electric is turned off for any reason, the Electric Department will not turn on your electric until your main circuit breaker is turned off. This is done for safety reasons, both yours and ours.
