Billing Department

As a department of the City of Anoka, Anoka Municipal Utility (AMU) has its utility billing staff located inside of Anoka City Hall. The utility shop, however, is in its own building a couple blocks away. The Anoka City Hall is located at the convergence of the Mississippi and Rum Rivers. The community name "Anoka" is said to derive from a Dakota term for "on both sides of the river" and an Ojibwa term for "working waters." 

Anoka City Hall is where customers go to set-up their utility accounts and transact other business. Check out our Community Resource and Residents’ Guide there as well!
