Monthly Utility Billing
Utility bills are normally mailed out at the beginning of the month and mailed to residents.  If you prefer to have this done electronically, then the EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer) process is for you.  If you enroll in the EFT program, you will receive notice of the amount due via email.  On or around the 20th of the month, the amount due on your notice will be automatically deducted from your checking or savings account. In order to enroll in the EFT program, please complete the following document (don't forget to include a voided check) and drop off or mail to City Hall:

Edgerton's ACTIVE LIVING PLAN
Active Living is a way of life that integrates physical activity into your daily routine. It starts with choosing to walk or bike instead of taking the car. This choice is influenced by the built environment.

GOAL:  To enable the City of Edgerton to become a more walkable community through strategic pedestrian improvements outlined in the Edgerton Active Living Plan.

OBJECTIVE:  Identify destinations, gaps, areas of concern, and prioritize projects for addressing pedestrian infrastructure in the City of Edgerton.

A PROPOSAL:  Think about walkability and bikeability when considering decisions that influence the built environment.

Here's our current plan:  http://edgertonmn.com/upload/Edgerton_Active%20Living%20Plan_2_5_16.pdf
