City Utilities

The City of Horace provides Water and Sewer treatment services to residents. Some areas of Horace get water service from Cass Rural Water. Residents are billed separately from Cass Rural Water for their service and you will receive a quarterly bill from the City of Horace for trash pick-up service.

If your residence receives water from the City of Horace, your city utility bill will include the monthly cost of service for Water, Sewer, and Trash/Recycling pick-up. Please read your water meter and note the current gallon reading on the monthly bill before returning with your payment. Call City Hall for any billing address changes by the 15th of each month. If you do not read and update your water meter, you will be charged for the maximum water usage and your bill will be $56.50 per month.
