Water Bills - Renters and new home owners are required to pay a water deposit of $130, which includes a $30 administration fee when moving in. When moving out, the deposit of $100 is applied to the final bill and the difference is refunded with interest. The monthly bill includes water, sewer, and trash. Meters are read on or about the 19th of month and bills are sent out soon after. Payments may be mailed to City of Wakefield, P.O. Box 326, paid at the office during office hours or put in the drop box on the north side of the City Building anytime, or paid online on our website at www.wakefieldks.com. You will need your account number when paying online.
Delinquent Notice - If the water bill is not paid by the 10th, a late charge is added, and a notice is sent (if renting, a copy will also be sent to the landlord). This is due before the day & time specified in the letter or the water will be shut off. There is a $45.00 reconnect fee plus the overdue bill payable in full before water can be turned back on. Extenuating circumstances must be heard by the City Council at the request of the resident.
Trash - Pick up is once a week, on Thursdays, for the entire city. Pickup is at curbside. Do not put trash out until the night before at the earliest. A cart is provided for your convenience. No rocks or metal items longer than 4 feet. Tree limbs, grass and leaves will not be picked up.
