City Hall - Frequently Asked Questions

How and where do I pay my water bill?

You may pay by cash or check at City Hall.  You may also pay by check or money order in the drop box, which is located 2 doors to the north of City Hall.  We also offer automated payments directly from your checking account.  The paperwork for that is available at City Hall. 


What is the difference between a 'Snow Emergency' and a 'Snow Route'?


A Snow Route is a designated roadway that is posted with a sign which states, 'No parking after 2 inches or more snow/ice accumulation'.  A Snow Emergency is declared by the city and there shall be no parking on ANY city street until the Snow Emergency is terminated.  A Snow Emergency will be broadcast over local area television, radio stations and on this website (see list below).
