Citizens Need to Watch Water Usage Through February


The City's Water Department would like to remind customers who have sewer services to make a conscious effort to conserve water usage for the months of December, January and February. Ordinance states that each residential customer will be charged sewer based on the average water usage from December, January and February.  With the new average taking effect on the March billing.  If you had a leak or problem during these months, your bill could be affected. Any questions or concerns should be directed to our office, 936 633-0220.


And as the seasons change and more customers begin to clear limbs, leaves and yard waste; please make sure and not place any object which could prevent the utility collections department from accessing your meters.  All meters are to be accessible by our department at all times.  We appreciate our customers giving us unlimited access to meters at all times.
