  •  Corrected Billing
    Posted on 12/31/2018 at 2:14 pm

    City of Manchester residents may have noticed they recently received a “Corrected Billing”. 

    The original utility bill sent to residents on December 21st accurately itemized all charges, but due to a software error, the tax portion of the bill (now noted as “ET”) did not tabulate into the total due column. The corrected bill accurately reflects these charges. Sending a corrected bill was necessary, especially for residents and businesses who have their payments automatically withdrawn from their checking accounts.

    Itemized charges also now include a new code - “ET”. Earlier this year the State of Iowa adopted new legislation developing a new water tax. This is called a Water Excise Tax (WET Tax). You can read about this tax and the legislation at https://tax.iowa.gov/WET. On the City’s utility bills it is shown as ET. 

    We apologize for the inconvenience and any confusion this may have caused. Please don’t hesitate to contact City Hall with any questions you may have.

  •  Alternate Side Parking Reminder
    Posted on 12/06/2018 at 3:31 pm

    As winter approaches, the City would like to remind residents of the Alternate Side Parking Ordinance. Alternate Side Parking is only in effect upon declaration. Declarations are reported to Channel 2 (KGAN); Channel 7 (KWWL); Channel 9 (KCRG); KMCH radio station FM 94.7; and can be found on the City of Manchester’s website. Residents may also contact the Manchester Police Department outside of regular business hours at 563.927.3355 or sign up for NIXLE.

    The declaration prohibits vehicular parking on streets between the overnight hours of 10:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. Vehicles may be parked on the “even” side of streets on even-numbered days and on the “odd” side of streets on odd-numbered days on the date declared.
