Utility Billing

City utility bills (not to be confused with private utility bills), include charges for water usage, sanitary sewer, street lights, storm drainage, and recycling.

Paying Your Bill

Residential utility bills cover three months and are mailed quarterly. Commercial, industrial, and multi-family utility bills are sent monthly. You can pay online, by mail, or in person.

By Mail Or In Person

Tear off the top half of your bill and mail it to the City of Golden Valley (see address on the right side of the bill) or put it in the drop box located near the front door of City Hall along with a check or cash (no credit cards). Payment must be received on or before the date listed (postmark date is not acceptable) to avoid a 10 percent penalty fee.

Delinquent Utility Bill Assessments

Residents who don't pay their City utility bills are charged an administrative fee, which is added to the amount owed and certified to their property tax bills as a special assessment. Certification occurs at a public hearing in October for bills delinquent more than 45 days.

For more information about utility bill assessment, call the City Finance Department at 763-593-8013.
