Did you know that most utilities are buried less than 3 feet below the surface? No matter how small the project, if you plan on digging call 811 before you dig! Missouri One Call can help you avoid an accident. Underground utility lines may be near where you are planning to dig. Missouri One Call personnel will notify CLGW who will locate and mark underground utility lines for free so you can avoid hitting them when digging. This service will help you avoid injury or disruption of service that may occur if utility lines are damaged.

New rates go into effect with January statements

Beginning with utility statements received after January 1, 2015, you will notice an adjustment to the current rates for the various utilities provided by City Light Gas & Water (CLGW).

This adjustment will enable CLGW to continue to provide you with the utility services you need to keep your family happy, healthy, and safe; while also enabling us to provide CLGW employees with the required tools and equipment needed to ensure they are able to maintain a safe working environment and return home to their families each evening.

As some of you may be aware, we have systems in service that are over 100-years-old and are still operational. These systems are in need of maintenance and/or replacement that may seem expensive, but the cost is still less than the potential outcomes that could result if the issues are not remedied. Along with maintenance to the aging infrastructure, many of the departments are using tools and equipment that have become obsolete or outdated.

In order to ensure that the systems and employees continue to operate safely and efficiently, following this adjustment, rates will be reassessed on an annual basis. As always, CLGW's mission is to provide the best possible service at the lowest possible price.

For your benefit, we have developed a simple Rate Adjustment Calculator, below, to better give you an idea of how your bill will be affected. Simply input your usage numbers from your current bill to see the estimated adjustments.

To provide a better customer experience and a safer work environment for our employees the CLGW business office is being remodeled. During construction customers may use the drive-thru window to conduct business regardless if you have your bill with you or not. We thank you for your patience as we work to better serve you.

Starting May 1, 2014 CLGW will offer Levelized Billing to its customers. We will use your past 12 months usage to calculate your monthly payment and add 5% to help cover the possibility of higher bills due to extreme weather. Customers will be required to "true up" at the end of each year, which means we will write you a check for any overpayments or bill for underpayment. In order to qualify for equal pay, customers must meet the following requirements:
• Must be a customer for a year at the same location.
• Not more than two payments past the due date in the last 12 months
• No returned checks in the last 12 months
• No non-pay disconnect in the last 12 months
• Must set up auto-payment via ACH, Debit or Credit Cards
If you have any questions, call our office at 573-888-5366.


CLGW now accepts Visa, MasterCard and Discover Credit and Debit cards. You can pay with a check or credit/debit card online, in the office, at the drive thru and over the phone.


Signup for ACH payments or paperless billing in the CLGW office for a chance to win a $50 utility bill credit. One winner will be drawn each month.


Several customers have reported receiving water line insurance offers. We want all our customers to know that this is not associated with CLGW. Please discuss this offer with your insurance agent.
