Requests for new service maybe made in person, by fax or by email. Services will be connected when a Utility Service Application for residential and commercial utilities is completed and the service deposit is paid.  A Utility Service Agreement is also required. This agreement is required by the TCEQ and every customer must sign this agreement before the City can establish service.  A copy of your driver's license is required. There is a deposit of $150.00 for water and trash service or $50.00 for trash service only. If service to an existing connection has been terminated or suspended, the City will not re-establish service unless it has a signed copy of this agreement. Services cannot be provided until all information and deposits are received.
