*FOR LANDLORD USE ONLY* Application for Automatic Reinstatement of Responsibility for Utility Billing Charges

FOR LANDLORD USE ONLY: Please contact the Treasury Office at (269) 329-4455 to set up water/sewer services in your name.

This is a free service that will be effective upon receipt of this form by the Treasury Office.
