Utility Rates

City of Chattahoochee, FL

Rates and Service Information

Utilities: The City provides Electric, Natural Gas, Water, and Sewer services. Meter Reading is between the 12th and 15th of each month and bills are due on the 1st of each month. If the bill is not paid by the close of the business day on the 10th (4:30 PM EST), a 10% penalty will automatically be added to each account that has not been paid. If the 10th falls on a weekend or holiday the city considers the next business day as the 10th, furthermore, a postmark of the 10th or sliding payments under the door after the close of the business day does not relieve a customer from paying the penalty. The "Cut off Date" is listed on the utility bill each month, payment must be received by the close of the business day (4:30 PM EST) the day before cut off to avoid a $25.00 administration fee and disconnection of service. (Example: If cut off day falls on a Monday, payment must be received by 4:30 PM EST on Friday). FAILURE TO RECEIVE BILL DOES NOT RELIEVE OBLIGATION TO PAY BILL BY DUE DATE.

Garbage Collection: Garbage is collected once per week to residential customers at a charge of $21 per month.  When a new account is opened, a can will be provided to you through our waste contractor, Waste Pro.  All Commercial accounts should contact City Hall for commercial garbage rates and days of pickup.

Trash Collection Day: Residential trash must be placed beside the street on Tuesdays if you live north of Mosquito Creek and on Wednesdays if you live south of Mosquito Creek.  Once your garbage has been picked up by Waste Pro, the resident must remove their can from the city right-of-way as soon as possible.

Rubbish Pickup: The City also provides rubbish pickup for all of its citizens.  Limbs/leaves and white goods should be in two totally separate piles next to the curb of your property so that the trucks can easily pick up the items.  There is no set day for pickup of these items as the two waste trucks are covering theirs routes daily and will routinely make their way down every street within the course of the week.  However, if you are planning on having a large pickup, please call the City Utilities office and arrange for a pickup the day you are planning on placing the items beside the road.
