Community Support

Harlan Municipal Utilities has always been a strong supporter of our community through direct cash & in-kind contributions to the City and through various economic development contributions.

  • HMU installs and maintains
    City Christmas lights, ornaments and lighting.

  • HMU assists City of Harlan crews
    in snow removal each year.
  • HMU bills all sewer, landfill & sewer connection fees

  • HMU Meter Reader Watch Program
    Employees look for anything suspicious as they pass a residence. A build-up of newspapers or mail is a signal to notify authorities that there may be a problem.
  • HMU vehicles are a Safe Haven for anyone needing assistance
    Especially children. They are taught in the classroom that they can approach a parked HMU vehicle at any time for help.
