Welcome to the City of Grayson Utilities Commission web site.

Here you will find information on the services offered by the Utilities Commission, our billing policies, answers to frequently asked questions, and important announcements (i.e. boil water advisories).

The site also provides easy access to printable forms (i.e. new service form, bill adjustment form) and our annual water quality reports. These forms and reports can be found by choosing a service from the appropriate link on the Services page.

On December 30th, at the monthly commission meeting we recognized Mayor George Steele for his 16 years of service. We wish him the best and may he enjoy his retirement, as we welcome newly elected Mayor Troy Combs.





Natural gas prices change due to the fluctuation of the market. This stems from the supply and demand issues within the industry and U.S. exports that have grown faster than expected. As a result, natural gas prices are between 70 and 90% higher than 2021.

Whether you use natural gas to heat your home or simply for a few appliances around the house, there are many ways to conserve and save on your utility bill. Below are a few simple steps to help.

        SEAL IT UP. Check for leaks around windows, doors, and other openings to the outside.Seal the leaks to keep in the warmth.

       CONTROL THE TEMP. Use programmable thermostats to help conserve energy.

               REGULARLY CHECK AND/OR REPLACE HVAC. filters every month. New filters usually only cost a few dollars. Dirty filters cost more to use, overwork the equipment, and result in lower indoor air quality.

                 INSULATE.Wrap water heaters with proper insulation and set the temperature to 120 F (or lower). Insulate your plumbing.

                ADJUST YOUR THERMOSTAT. Every degree above 68 on your thermostat can increase your bill by about 3%. So, if you crank it up to a toasty 78 degrees, you've already added 30% to your bill.

 Payment Options

During the current Coronavirus pandemic, check and cash payments can still be made through the drive thru at our office. We encourage other options of payment, such as ACH, online (credit card), or using your bank's online bill pay service, as well as via mail, night drop and telephone (credit card).

Changes to Kentucky's Call-Before-You-Dig Law 2018




Because you receive natural gas service, you likely have underground natural gas lines at your place of residence or business.  Damage to natural gas lines from excavation work can lead to explosion or fire and can cause property damage, serious injuries or death.

Beginning July 14, 2018, the Kentucky Public Service Commission ("PSC")  began investigating instances of excavation damage to underground natural gas pipelines to determine whether the pipeline was properly located prior to excavation.  Under changes to the Underground Facility Damage Prevention Act of 1994 (the "Act"), which took effect on July 14, 2018, the PSC will have the authority to levy fines for failing to comply with the requirements of the Kentucky statute related to protection of underground utilities.

Key requirements of the Act (KRS 367.4917) include:

  • Excavators, including property owners working on their own property, must call the 811 one-call center at least two working days prior to the start of excavation.  IF YOU FAIL TO CALL 811 AND THEN DAMAGE A NATURAL GAS LINE, YOU WILL BE SUBJECT TO A PENALTY.
  • The requirement to call 811 applies to all work on private property if it occurs within a utility easement or uses mechanized equipment.
  • Natural gas operators must mark the facilities within two working days of receiving the request.
  • Penalties for violating the statute are up to $1,250 for the first violation, $2,000 for a second violation, and $4,000 for subsequent violations.
