The move for the city's utility customer service has been delayed a second time while renovations at the new location are finalized.

People can continue to pay their utility bills at the administration building, 100 E First St., through 5 p.m. next Friday.

Six members of the human resources department moved Friday to the new location at 7 N Broadway, said Ross VanderHamm, city finance director and city clerk.
