New Utility Service
Before you start the application, please note:
New Residential Service Applications require:
- Completed Utility Application
- Applicants to upload a photo of driver's license.
- A required deposit* of $300.00 or a letter of credit** must accompany the application.
Utility Billing Customer Service Account Specialist’s goal is to process all complete applications within 2 working days. (Complete are those with the application, letter of credit** and copy of driver’s license.) We will make every attempt to contact you if your application is for any reason incomplete or a deposit* is still required within 2 working days of submission.
Should service need to be established before an Account Specialist has contacted you, or if you have not been contacted within 2 working days we encourage you to make contact with Utility Billing at 817-573-1114.
New Service Applications that are not completed or no deposit has been paid are kept on file for only 10 working days from date of submission. Should the customer not fulfill the application requirements within 10 days, the application will need to be re-submitted.

Additional options for your utility service:
Average Monthly Payment Plan
Ask about our Average Monthly Payment "AMP" Plan. After one year of being a utility customer with the City, residential customers can sign up to have their utility service bill changed a "rolling average of consumption". You can discontinue participation in the program at any time. AMP Application
New Commercial Customers
Please contact the Granbury Permit Department at City Hall to ensure all permit related applications have been completed before submitting a commercial utility application for new service.
On a commercial account, a Certificate of Occupancy (CO) must be issued by the city of Granbury Permits Department before utility service can be initiated and all backflow devices and grease traps current.
Commercial deposits shall be made in cash. The Director of Finance, or his or her authorized representative, may authorize an alternate method of deposit for commercial accounts on a case by case basis. For commercial accounts, a service deposit shall be based on the estimate of the cost of sixty (60) days utility service, with a $150 minimum deposit. The amount of the deposit shall be estimated by the Director of Finance, or his or her authorized representative. When billings for a comparable establishment are not available to establish the deposit for a commercial connection, the Director of Finance shall estimate a two month billing based upon information received from the applicant.
