Notice to Property Owners Regarding New Utility Account Setup Procedures
Tooele City Finance Department recently implemented a new policy regarding the procedures for new requests for utility services. This change may affect homeowners with rental properties that have utilities under a tenant or manager name.
Ordinance 2015-20 was approved to only allow homeowners the ability to establish new utility services within Tooele City. With this recent change we are asking our citizens with rental properties located in the City to take note, effective August 1, 2015 Tooele City will no longer place utility accounts in any person’s name, other than the homeowner.
If you are the homeowner/agent of a property and currently the utilities are under a name other than the property owner, be aware in the event the water is turned off and taken out of this account name, services can only be restored by having the homeowner come into our office located at 90 N Main Street and initiating new service. If you are out of state or unavailable to come in, services can be initiated by mailing in a notarized copy of the Meter Deposit Record Form, along with the required information. Please allow sufficient time on mailed in requests to turn on water services.
