Utility Service & Payments

All customers requesting water, sewer, and garbage service, hereafter referred to as "utilities", from the City of Huron must make application in person to the City Finance Office at 239 Wisconsin SW, Huron, SD. Utilities will not be furnished to a customer until an application with a picture ID and a deposit of $100 is received by the City. No service will be granted to customers with a delinquent account from a prior residence until such bill is paid in full. Bills are sent out on the first of each month and are due on or before the 18th of each month.

Your utility bill may be paid with cash, check, or a credit/debit card. If wanting to pay with a credit/debit card you must come to the office or pay online. A drop box is located in the front lobby and a drive-up drop box is located on the south side of the building. Automatic payment of your account is available by completing an authorization form and submitting it with a voided check. The automatic payment is withdrawn from your account on the 2nd Wednesday of each month.

Garbage Service: 

Garbage service is mandatory for residential customers. A 60 or 90-gallon brown container shall be provided to each residence.
