Masks required in city’s buildings

The City of North Liberty now requires masks in its public, indoor spaces. These spaces include the Community Center, City Hall and Council Chambers. This requirement will be in effect while Johnson County sees substantial and high levels of community coronavirus transmission.

This policy, in line with public health guidance from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Johnson County Public Health, is targeted to help protect the community from the highly contagious Delta variant of the virus that causes COVID-19, which is responsible for increasing hospitalizations, including among children.

While the rapid spread of the COVID-19 Delta variant is concerning, vaccines provide excellent protection against serious illness and help protect others who are vulnerable to the disease. The best way to protect yourself, your family and your community from COVID-19 is to get a free vaccination, available for those 12 and older at local pharmacies and hospitals. Visit to find a site for a free, safe and effective vaccination convenient for you.

The city’s approach to its public health policies are a dial, not a switch, as we provide targeted mitigation in line with guidance from our public health partners. As guidance and conditions change, we will update our policies.

City Utility Billing

Sign up for automatic payments ACH-payment-form

The City of North Liberty provides water and waste water service for commercial and residential properties in North Liberty, as well as residential trash, compost and recycling services though Johnson County Refuse.

To set up an account, or for additional questions, call City Hall at (319) 626-5700. Sign up to pay or view your water bill online, or download, complete and return this form ACH-payment-form if you would rather have an automatic payment from your bank.

City utilities are billed monthly. Your bill will include charges for water (based on use), waste water (based on use), curbside recycling ($5.15), trash (varies based on container size) and storm water management ($2), as well as a 6 percent sales tax on the water and, for commercial properties, sewer portions.

Rates are approved by the city council and based on the cost of building, maintaining, running and improving our water and waste water treatment plants and systems, which are directly influenced by the need to meet increased state and federal regulations.

Water and waste water use are billed based on actual use in 1,000-gallon increments, so you might see changes in your bill month to month, or a higher bill in a month you use less than your average. For example, if your household uses 1,400 gallons in January and February, your first two monthly bills would be for the 1,000-gallon minimum each. If you used 1,200 gallons in March, your bill would be for 2,000 gallons, even though you used less water, because your cumulative use added up to another 1,000 gallons. (See the table below.)

If you have specific questions about your account, you can contact City Hall at (319) 626-5700 for assistance.
