City Council Meeting Materials

    Utility Customers:
    In June, the City switched to a new utility billing system. At the request of our software vendor, we moved all of the information to our new system on June 13th, along with all current electric and water meter readings. In order to facilitate this software change we needed to have the meter readings done earlier than normal. As a result, many utility customers saw bills in June with shorter read times and are now seeing bills in July with longer read times. Due to the varying read times and high summer temperatures, many of you are now experiencing higher than normal bills.
    We are making every effort to get readings back on schedule and apologize for the hardship this causes. We ask for your continued patience as we get this running efficiently. Thank you.
