We provide commercial and residential water, sewer and garbage service. The City’s water is provided by Big Spring, the second largest limestone spring in the southeast. We pride ourselves on the quality of our water. Click here to access the latest water quality report.
The City contracts through a private company to provide garbage pick-up. When you apply for garbage service, a polycart will be delivered to your residence. Only household trash placed in that polycart will be serviced. Pick-ups take place early Friday morning, and the City recommends taking out your trash on Thursday evening (holiday schedules are an exception to this recommendation).

All new utility accounts must be applied for in person at City Hall, 201 East Avenue. You can speed up the process by downloading and filling out the utility services form online. Be prepared to show your driver’s license or State-issued ID. If you are renting or leasing the property where water service is requested, you are required to show a copy of the rental or lease agreement and must include the property owner’s name, signature and telephone number.
