The City of Kechi provides water, sewer, gas, stormwater, trash and recycling services.
Please contact City Hall to set up new services. A completed Kechi Utilities Application, a new service fee of $60 for gas and $60 for water, and driver's license (or state issued picture id) are required.

For residents with stormwater, trash and recycling and no other City services, bills will be sent quarterly on the 5th of March, June, September and December with payment due on the 20th of the month.

Payments can be made online, by mail, placed in the utility payment drop box in City Hall parking lot, in person at City Hall or by phone (the same processing fees as above still apply). You can also sign up for automatic bill pay by filling out an automatic bill pay agreement.
Payments made after the due date will be assessed a 10% penalty.
Gas base rate is based on meter size, with most being 275cfm, and the base rate for that size is $12.45 per month. Gas unit rates vary each month depending on the cost to the city, plus transportation and the flat fee, which is $2 per unit for residential customers to repay the gas loan.
Recycling is $6.39 per month for the first cart and $4.00 per month for additional carts.
Sewer base rate is $22.04 per month and usage rate is $9.57 per unit. The usage rate is calculated based on the winter monthly average for water used. The water usage for December, January and February is averaged, and this value is used as the sewer usage from April through March. If a customer is new or otherwise does not have an established monthly winter average, the sewer usage charged will be the city average.
Stormwater rate is $6.00 per residence. For commercial properties it is $6.00 per equivalent residential unit (eru) and calculated based on the square footage of impervious surface.
Trash is $12.36 for the first cart and $5.20 for additional carts.
Water base rate is based on meter size, most being 1" unless commercial or higher volume usage. For a 1" meter, the base rate is 22.00 per month, and usage rate is $6.25 per unit (1000 gallons) up to 10 units, from 11-15 units the usage rate is $7.75 per unit, and over 15 units is $9.80 per unit.
