  19. Notice of Required Fees & Receipts*

    I understand that a refundable deposit, a set meter fee, and receipts from Development Services (if not building in an exempt location) is required prior to the meter being set by Public Works Department. Payment can be made through a check to the Town of Northlake that can be submitted either in person or by mail. (Please address any mail to the Utility Billing Department and state the purpose of the check).

    I understand that should equipment be damaged, that this deposit will be forfeit and the deposit will be used to help cover the cost of replacing the equipment. 

    I also understand that a receipt will be provided within 3-5 business days via e-mail from the date that the Town of Northlake receives payment, and that it can take up to 14 business days from the time that the Town receives and processes payment to set the meter.  

  20. Notice Regarding Buried Meter Sites*

    To help ensure that it does not take longer than 14 days to set a new meter, please ensure that the site for the new meter is not buried. Buried sites prevent Public Works from being able to set the meter and will lead to a delay in the installation of a new meter that may cause the meter to be set outside of the 14-day window.

    Please indicate below that you understand that meter sites must remain unburied in order for Public Works to set the new meter, otherwise it is likely that the setting of the new meter will be delayed beyond the normal 14-day window.
