Q: Who is Conway Corporation?
A: Conway Corporation operates the city-owned electric, water, wastewater, cable internet and cable television utility services for the citizens of Conway. We have been a part of the Conway community since 1929 when the Conway City Council first franchised the corporation to operate the city's electric light plant. (The water department was placed under Conway Corporation's operation in 1930. The wastewater was added in 1957 and the cable system in 1980.)
Q: How do I establish service with Conway Corporation?
A: Accounts may be opened or changed between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday (except holidays) by visiting Conway Corporation’s General Office located at 1307 Prairie Street in downtown Conway. New customers are required to come in and complete an “Application for Service.”
In addition to the application:
- $150.00 deposit for residential customers due at the time of application.
- Proof of identification. Two (2) forms of identification. Conway Corporation prefers a picture I.D. (driver's license) and a social security card. A Conway Corporation customer is required to be at least 18 years of age.
- A lease/rental agreement from the property owner/management stating the physical address where services are to be connected (street address and apartment number). If for some reason the address/apartment changes after the information has been provided, it is the customer’s responsibility to contact Conway Corporation to avoid any disruption of services or additional charges.
Q: What is the cost of establishing service?
A: If you have not already established a good credit history with us or your last utility provider, a deposit will be required before any service can be connected. The deposit amount is determined by your status as a residential or commercial customer. The standard deposit for residential customers is $150. The deposit will be held as security for payment of any service provided or billed by Conway Corporation. Deposits are refunded after final bill settlement for all accounts or upon completion of 12 consecutive months of good credit performance at which time the deposit is applied to the customer account.
Q: Who do I notify if my trash or recycling has not been picked up?
A: Notify the City of Conway Sanitation Department. Conway Corporation provides billing services for the City of Conway sanitation department, but does not handle trash/recycling collection. The city of Conway Sanitation Department can be reached at 501-450-6155 or the recycling hotline at 501-450-6162. Their web site is: http://www.conwaysanitation.com.

To enroll, you will need your account number and your last invoice amount. Plus, you can choose to set up your account to pay from your checking account.
