If your water is freezing in your home, please leave your water running! The frost line is deeper this year than it has been in quite some time, especially in the streets; keeping the flow moving will alleviate some of the freezing issues. Most residential customers are on the auto-read list for the winter, but if you have any questions about your auto-read status, please call City Hall at 307-468-2441.
