New customers requesting service must come to our office located at 508 S Dixie Hwy ~ Cave City and complete a New Customer Application which requires a photo I.D. and proof of residency (i.e. copy of lease, etc.). Persons requesting new service for rental property must pay a refundable deposit of $50.00 for water and $50.00 for sewer in addition to providing the name and telephone of the landlord or lease holder. Persons requesting new service for personally owned property must pay a refundable deposit of $50.00 for water. Deposits are refunded once the final bill following service termination is paid in full.
Customers are billed for products and service that have been rendered during the previous month. It is because of this that prompt payment is required upon receiving your bill. Bills are mailed to customers on or around the same date each month depending on the billing cycle for your area. Once you have received your first bill, you can expect to receive a bill on or around the same date of each month thereafter. Each bill contains information such as your name, address, account number, monthly water usage, due date, amount due, penalty date, amount due after the due date, state and local use taxes (where applicable) and our remit to address. We bill for and accept payment of garbage collection fees for the communities of Cave City and Park City as a courtesy to our customers and local waste removal providers. Outside of billing and collection administration we have no authority with regards to garbage collection schedules, fee schedules, waste container delivery and pick-up, etc. We will notify the agency responsible for your garbage collection once new service is established. All questions, comments or concerns regarding your garbage collection should be directed to your waste removal provider.
