Additional Requirements
  • Under the city's Identity Theft Protection Program (PDF), landlords are required to have certain identification information for new tenants and possible, additional office personnel authorized to establish utility service
  • Due to the sensitivity of this information, the Utility Billing Department would like to cover the application process with the landlord, addressing any additional questions or concerns they may have
Deposit Information for Renters

Identity Theft Protection Program
Effective May 1, 2009, the City of Blue Springs will utilize its Identity Theft Protection Program (PDF) to protect its consumers when establishing new water and/or sewer service with the city. The Identity Theft Protection Program stems from the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions (FACT) Act of 2003, and requires all creditors, including municipal utilities, to utilize such programs to address the risk of identity theft to consumers.
