The City of White Oak supplies its citizens with water, sewer, and sanitation service. There are a few areas of the City that sewer service is not available. In order to set up new service, there are multiple forms that must be filled out and returned accompanied with a $125 water meter deposit. When service is disconnected, the final bill will be deducted from the deposit with any amount remaining mailed to your new address; a bill with any amount owed will be mailed to your new address.
New customers may fill out these forms at City Hall, return the forms by fax (903) 297-3452 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The water deposit may be paid for over the phone; although a small fee from GovPayNet will apply.
For all other utilities, please go to the Area Resources page for information.
Before a resident can move into a residence or commercial building, the issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy (aka Safety Permit) is required. There is a $30 fee for this permit. For more information, please visit the Building Permits & Inspections web page.
The City does not require pets to be registered and there is not a residential limit for dogs and cats; however, it is always courteous to remember your neighbors and any loud noises or odors could be cause for complaint. Please see the Animal Control page for more information.
