Beginning next Saturday, December 1, the City of Storm Lake will be requiring a $65 combined utility deposit for all new rental customers and current rental customers who move to a new address.
Current rental customers who have their current service disconnected for non-payment will also be required to pay the deposit, in addition to the disconnect fee, to have their service restored.
The combined utility deposit will be refunded after 24 consecutive months of penalty-free service. The original amount of the deposit will be credited to the customer's account.
Under no circumstances will deposits be used to pay past due accounts. Deposits will be applied to the final bill at an address. Please note that a change of address will require a new deposit.
For more information on the combined utility deposit, call the City of Storm Lake water department at 712-732-8020.
