New Resident Information

New Renters or Tenants:

Renters DO NOT transfer the New Hope utility bill into their name per city ordinance. City utility bills MUST remain in the name of the property owner. Renters should not try to set up an online utility account.

Renters can pay a bill online with a customer and account number as a one-time payment.  We currently accept the following forms of payment; credit card (Visa or MasterCard), electronic check, in person, mail in, bank bill pay, or over the phone (844) 869 3219. More information about rental utility bills can be found on the  Rental Property Utility Bills page.
