Dakota City provides water and sewer services. The City’s monthly bill also includes trash collection services from Gill Hauling. Utility bills are sent out by the 1st of each month and are due on the 15th. A late fee of $10 is applied to all accounts that are past due after the 15th. Bills are printed on post cards.
Water meters are read by the 28th of each month. Water usage is billed each month. Sewer charges are calculated each January and are based on a customer’s water usage in the last quarter of the calendar year (October, November, and December usage).
New Utility Customer
A new customer form must be filled out at City Hall, located at 1511 Broadway. A deposit of $100 is required for owner-occupied properties and $200 for rental properties. The City will accept a letter of credit from a previous utility provider so long as the customer can demonstrate that the bill was paid on time for twelve months.
