When paying your water/sewer/garbage bill, the bills are delivered to you the first of every month. If you do not receive a bill, please call the city at 712-364-2428 and they will send out a duplicate bill. The bill is payable on or before the 15th of each month. If the bill is not paid by the due date, a ten percent delinquent charge is added to the bill. It is then payable by the 30th of the month or the water may be disconnected. A $30.00 off fee and a $30.00 on fee during regular hours, and $40.00 on fee after hours, is added to the current bill and all need to be paid for the water to be restored.
A $75.00 water deposit is required for all tenants of rental property. If you move or purchase a home, the deposit is refunded to you.
