Usage History of Rental Units

Utility payments can significantly add to your monthly budget. Before signing a lease, consider the utility services and average usage at the prospective location.  Keep in mind that everyone uses different amounts of electricity so your usage could vary.  In addition to charges for electricity and water, your City of Columbia bill could include fees for sewer, trash and stormwater. Be sure to check with the property owner. For average utility consumption for a location, please contact Utility Customer Service at 573-874-7380.
