Petition Process for Utility Extensions

When a Petition is Required

The City will run city sewer to areas that are annexed into the city limits. For the City to actually extend sewer by individual houses in order for residents to tie on, a petition process must be followed.

Signature Requirements

The petition requires the signature of at least 51% of the lot owners owning at least 51% of the property in the area affected.

Cost & Payments

Once the petition is signed, an estimate is prepared on the total cost, and the property owners are advised of their estimated share of this cost. At that point, the property owners can decide if they want to go forward with the extension.


If the community would like to have a representative of the City meet with them as a group to provide further information and answer any questions, please call the Engineering Division at 919-777-1122.
