Any resident or business occupying a property (purchasing, renting or purchase by land contract) and wishes to place the utility bill in their name must make a utility deposit unless creditworthiness is established. The required deposit is one sixth (1/6) of the annual bill for the property. You must come to the office with a valid photo ID to apply for utility services. When you move from the property, contact us at 260.925.0365 and the utility deposit will be applied to your final bill.
