General Information about Rock Rapids Municipal Utilities
Rock Rapids Municipal Utilities is the provider of all natural gas, electricity, water, and sewer utilities in town. As a locally owned municipal company, we pride ourselves in offering our customers the best value for their dollar. Our customers are our owners.
All residential customers need to complete an residential application for service. This must include information on any adult over the age of 18 living in the residence. Please be prepared to provide employment information, social security numbers and signatures for all adult residents. This form needs to be completed whenever you move into a new or different residence in town.
All commercial customers need to complete an business application for service. Please be prepared to provide a billing address, owner/officer contact information, federal identification number and signature.
All new customers have the option of (1) providing an acceptable letter of credit for each service (gas, electricity, water) or (2) making a deposit for the services provided. Acceptable letters of credit can have no more than one late payment in the past twelve months. Deposits are based on the highest usage in the past twelve months at the location where service will be provided.
Deposits are held until twelve consecutive months of timely payments are received. Deposits are refunded, with interest, at the next billing cycle and will be applied to your account. If a customer moves out of our service area before the twelve month requirement is met, the deposits will be refunded with the final billing for the property.
Utility bills are always due on the 15th of the month. They may be dropped into one of the drop boxes any time on the 15th (including the overnight hours) and be considered paid on time. Any bill postmarked on the 15th is also considered paid on time.
