The City of Haven supplies electricity, water, sewer, and refuse disposal service to all residents.
In order to open a utility account, the city requires each new customer making application for utility service to make a cash deposit in advance with the City Clerk in the amount equal to the expected average bill for a three month period or $250.00, which ever is the lower; except that for home owners the amount is equal to the expected average bill for a three month period or $150.00, which ever is the lower.
If the new utility customer can provide a letter of good credit from the previous electric utility service, indicating no more than one late charge in the last 12 months of service, no deposit will be required. Bills are mailed on the 15th of each month, and are due on the 4th of the following month.
Should you experience a break in service, call the city office, 465-3618. For problems after office hours, call (620) 465-3881.
Gas service is provided through KG&E, Kansas Gas Service of Newton (800-794-5126).
Telephone service is provided through Sprint (800-788-3500)
