Online utility payments now available, click here to find out more. 

Resolutions 6489, 6490, and 6491 regarding Utility Rate Increases took effect October 1, 2016.


Meter readings, repairs and preparation of utility bills are all done by city personnel. Meters are read and billed in regular monthly intervals. Due to a four-day work week the number of days for a billing cycle may vary, but you will still only be billed twelve times a year. 

All utility bills include a state-mandated Universal Energy Charge of .00039 per kilowatt hour of electricity used. 

Meter Reading

Boulder City Code requires that all meters be accessible to meter readers. Fences should be constructed behind electric meters.
