Municipal Utilities

As a city, we are continuously seeking ways to bring convenience and cost-savings to our business community. Managing water, sewer, electric and refuse/recycling services gives us another opportunity to do just that in a way that positively impacts your bottom line.

Because we house these services together, you have one contact, one bill and one provider. And by leveraging our expertise in managing utilities, we've been able to find ways to maximize resources and minimize costs—and positively impact your bottom line.

Our utilities department collectively oversees the following services:
Utility Deposit

Any resident or business occupying a property, (purchasing, renting or purchase by land contract) and who wishes to place the utility bill in their name must make a utility deposit unless creditworthiness is established. The required deposit is one sixth (1/6th) of the annual bill for the property. You must come to the office to apply for utility services. You must have a valid photo ID. When you move from the property, contact us at 260-925-0365 and the utility deposit will be applied to your final bill.

Taxpayers have the ability to view budget notices in one central online location at BudgetNotices.IN.Gov. A new email subscription option is provided to taxpayers to stay informed of submissions by their local units. Taxpayers will be able to view all local government units in DeKalb county, search by their address, or use an interactive map tool. This website has been designed to promote the importance of budget notices and the role that they play in the daily lives of Indiana taxpayers. Taxpayers that do not have Internet access or have difficulties with the website may contact the Indiana Department of Local Government Finance at (888) 739-9826 and request a paper copy of the notices for their local government units.
