A stand-by fee means a fee charged by the City for Water and Sewer availability when City Water is shut-off, but not disconnected. Availability means the City currently has capacity to serve the connected unit.
It takes approximately three months of services to offset the water meter shut off fee. If you will be gone less than three months, you still may want to have your water shut off to prevent damage from a potential leak.
The City is unable to "shut-off" Sewer-only customers.
To request your Water to be shut off, complete and bring the Standby Request form to the Finance Department at 152 W Cedar St.

Utility rate studies utilize the “customer class” to determine the adequacy of the rates charged. Your customer class is typically a factor of where you live and the ability of the city to deliver services to that area. There are three different customer classes. The “sewer-only” customer class represents those customers that receive sewer services from the City but are provided water by another entity or their own well. The “water-only” class receives only water services from the city and the “water & sewer” class logically receive both services from the City.
