Utility Billing Change Form 

Use this form to:

Tenant Billing Authorization Form

Stanwood Municipal Code requires that utility accounts must be in the name of the property owners. Property owners may request, in writing, that tenants and/or property management companies receive bills, payment reminders, and shut off notices. The city may deny billing tenants based on past history of individual accounts. Utility charges remain with the property, regardless of changes of occupancy or ownership. Property owners must complete an Authorization For Tenant Billing form with each change in occupancy. Past due account balances must be paid in full before a new tenant is setup to receive bills. If owner requests billings sent to tenant, the city will not send copies to the owner. Owners will be sent a copy of past due notices.

Water, Sewer & Drainage
