Utility Billing


Utility Billing Update:  All of the City’s second quarter utility bills have been sent out and you should have received your latest bill.  A reminder that with the city resuming the administration of the bills there are some changes to where you send your payment (see below for details).    If you have specific questions please call the city’s Utility Billing line at 651-395-5830 or email at ub@ci.forest-lake.mn.us


To Our Utility Customers,

The City of Forest Lake is upgrading its utility billing system so as to improve our process and provide the customer with a better user experience. In this process the City has found some data inconsistencies in the information provided by our third party billing vendor.  The City wants to ensure that the bills that we send out are accurate.  Therefore, the utility billing for the second quarter of 2021 will be slightly delayed. Further information will be available soon.  Thanks for your patience.
