Connecting to City Utilities, Garbage and Recycling

City Utilities include Water, Wastewater, Electrical, Garbage and Recycling.  Utility bills are bundled and include all five services whether the customer uses them or not. 

To connect water, sewer and electrical systems of your structure you must make a deposit for utilities and pay a tap fee (if new installation).  Your plumber and electrician, or you, need to check with the Utility Department to see where the lines need to be run to connect to existing water, sewer or electrical services.  Temporary or Construction Meters must be requested two weeks prior to project start date to schedule installation.  All fees and deposits MUST be paid prior to any connection.

Refer to fee schedule below for current deposits and tapping fees.

The release of temporary utilities for construction purposes will be allowed with a utilities deposit; however, this does not authorize occupancy of the building.  Temporary utilities and equipment/appliance checks are not a connect for permanent service and thus may be disconnected at any time for non-compliance or inspections which do not pass code requirements.
