With the steady increase in the number of rental properties in Beaumont, the City has changed its procedure regarding utility accounts for both residential and business rentals as follows:
- The utility account must be in the property owner's name.
- Tenants' names will be removed from utility accounts.
- If requested, Beaumont will mail a copy of the utility bill to the service address under the owner's name with "and Tenant" following the owner's name. Fill out the rental application form (PDF) to have a copy mailed to the tenant or contact the Utility Department by calling 780-929-1351 or emailing us.
- Any account issues are the responsibility of the property owner.
The changes mean there will not be any adjustment billing when tenants move in or out.
