Utility Rates

The City of Williams is responsible for providing safe, high-quality, reliable water to residential, commercial, and industrial users.  The City is proposing to increase water utility revenues by adjusting water rates on December 1, 2019.  Revenues will be used to ensure the City can meet State and Federal water quality laws, and construct, repair, maintain and properly operate water supply infrastructure.  

On September 21, 2016, the City Council adopted a series of water rate adjustments for the years 2015 to 2019.  The first rate adjustment under this series took effect December 2015.

Establishing Service

The procedure for establishing utility service with the City of Williams varies, dependent upon customer status. Every applicant will be required to fill out a City of Williams Application for Service.

The Application for Service will establish the customer's account number and effective date of service, as well as supply the City with important information to safeguard the customer's account.

Property Owner:

No previous payment history is needed to establish service with the City if you are a property owner. Our Application for Service form must be filled out and you must provide a copy of your recorded deed for the property to initiate service.

Discontinuance of Service:

Customers who move and discontinue service with the City of Williams need to phone Customer Service at (530) 473-5380 to fill out a Discontinuance of Service form. Customers will be asked for the effective date that the service is to be discontinued, as well as a forwarding address for their closing bill. This form is very important as it safeguards the customer from undue charges.
