If I sell my home between utility billing cycles, will the City reimburse me for the “unused” service period?
No, all fees included on your utility invoice (stormwater, solid waste, neighborhood lighting utility—if applicable) run with the property and the City does not prorate the amount due should a property change hands during the year. The individual/party that owns the property in question when the utility bill is received is responsible for payment in full.We recommend that you discuss balancing your utility account through your realtor and escrow closing, similar to how property taxes are pro-rated.
Yard waste is picked up on your regular refuse and recycling collection day. Click the link below for more details on Yard Waste Collection. Alternatively, residents may drop off acceptable yard waste free-of-charge at the Bill Holbrook Regional Composting Facility, which is operated by Ohio Mulch and is located at 4120 Roberts Road. The facility is closed on most City holidays.
