Economic Rebate Plan

In an effort to help our local business community and citizens during these trying times, we are offering water/sewer rebates on your water/sewer bills for local receipts.

How does it work?

The process is easy!  Spend $25 at ANY local business, write your name (as it appears on your water/sewer bill), phone number, and account number on each receipt and submit with your utility bill by mail, email or in the drop box in front of City Hall and the City will apply a $15 rebate to your water/sewer account, up to the maximum allowable credit of $60.
