The Utility Operations Division's mission is to provide quality customer service and confidentiality to the City of Monroe citizens; to ensure that every City water meter is read and billed each month; and maintain accurate information as it relates to customers and other departmental inquiries. The Division's employees strive to improve the employee/customer relationship, provide a professional atmosphere, and promote teamwork along with communication amongst each other and other departments.

The Utility Operations Division consists of three different arrears of service which are Customer Service, Billing, and Container Maintenance. Customer Service is the front line for all customer activity at the City Hall Annex. They provide assistance with Water Accounts, Property Taxes, Sales Taxes, Occupational Licenses, and Taxicab Certificates. Billing is responsible for reading all city meters, billing for water sewer and trash services, and turning water off/on for nonpayment, new service, and termination of service. Container Maintenance delivers trash containers, maintain inventory of container, and replace/repair trash containers when damaged or stolen.
