Utility Customer Service is a function of the Finance Department.  Duties include managing water service requests, billing, and collections for users of the City’s water supply.  Bills for residential and commercial customers are issued monthly.

Residential customers are typically billed for water usage, a recycling charge, a sewer user fee, a sanitary fee, and stormwater utility fees.  The sanitary fee is billed on behalf of and turned over to the Decatur Sanitary District.  Recycling charges are billed regardless of whether services are utilized.
