Utility Department

The Utility Billing Office is responsible for billing, collecting, and providing water, sewer, stormwater, and sanitation services.

Payments can still be turned into the drop boxes (one is located near the Emergency entrance door on the porch, and the other is located at the drive-thru) at City Hall during that time frame. While the Utility Office is staffed from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm, we ask that you continue to submit payments online, through the mail, or by utilizing the Utility drive-thru window or drop boxes.

For after-hour emergencies, or water leaks, call the Bucyrus Police Department @ 419-562-1006

Mailbox Damage Policy
Winter is here and the snow plows will undoubtedly be pressed into service in the coming weeks. Mailboxes are sometimes damaged during snow plowing as a result of the force of the snow as it is being pushed aside. Most mailboxes should be capable of withstanding this force if properly installed and maintained, however damage to mailboxes is still a reality. While government agencies are not required to replace damaged mailboxes, the City of Bucyrus does choose to do so as a courtesy. Replacement mailboxes will consist of a standard 7” x 9” x 19” mailbox on a 4” x 4” post. Decorative mailboxes or those above the standard mailbox mentioned above will not be replaced in kind.
