Anyone needing utility services must complete and submit an application for service. A $20.00 turn on or transfer fee is assessed with each application and will be billed on the first statement. Customers who are renting are required to pay a deposit of $300.00. This deposit is refundable after two years of good payment history* or will be applied to the final bill upon termination of the account and any remaining amount will be refunded. Customers who have purchased real property may have the deposit waived with documentation showing ownership of the property (e.g. Buyer's Settlement Statement, property tax billing, etc.). Please review the Security Deposit Policy for detailed information regarding the Utility department policy regarding the $300.00 security deposit.
Download a PDF version of the Utility Application. Return the completed form to the City Office with the utility deposit, if required. A copy of the applicant's photo identification will be taken by a Utility Clerk at the time of application.
Service connection and disconnection requests must be received by 12:00 noon in order to receive same-day service. Service requests received after 12:00 noon will not be processed until the following business day. Please plan your moving schedule accordingly.
An Information Sheet for new residents with additional helpful contact information is also available.
*Department policy defines good payment history as having no more than three late payments and no balances carried into the next month over a two-year period.
Customers may terminate a utility account by downloading the Utility Termination form, filling it out, and returning it to the Utility Office. Customers will be responsible for any remaining charges due on the account for service through the termination date. Please submit the termination form as soon as possible so final meter readings can be taken.
The City of Hurricane provides culinary water, electricity, and storm drainage utility services for most areas within the City limits. The City also bills for sewer and garbage services on behalf of Ash Creek Special Service District and Washington County Solid Waste. Please see our contacts page for Ash Creek Sewer and Washington County Solid Waste contact information.
Meter readings are taken each each month for water and power usage. Bills are mailed on the 1st of each month. Utility bills are due and payable by the 15th of the month. A 5% late fee is assessed if the bill is not paid in full by the 15th. If the balance remains upaid through the end of the month, an additional $10.00 non-payment penalty will be assessed on the first business day of the month.
Final notices before shut-off are mailed at the first of each month to those customers who have a past due balance. If payment of the past due balance is not made by the 15th of the month following the month in which the balance was originally due, electric and/or water service will be disconnected. In order to avoid service disconnection, customers must pay any past due balance by the 15th or pay the full balance prior to the scheduled shut-off date. The shut-off date is scheduled with the utility crews each month and the disconnection date will vary from month to month. Service may be disconnected at any point after the 15th of the month if the past due balance has not been paid. If service is disconnected, the customer will be required to pay the full account balance before service will be reconnected. There will also be a reconnection fee assessed to the account.
