*****   Freezing Water Lines  *****

Water lines may start freezing up.

 Please check your water temp.  If it's below 38 degrees F, the City is recommending that you let your water run the size of a pencil to keep your service line from freezing.

Please call City Hall at (563)547-3101 and the City will allow a partial credit on your water bill.

If you do not call City Hall, your bill WILL NOT be adjusted. Thank you.
