Welcome to the City of Tipton and Tipton Municipal Utility

Tipton Municipal Utility was established in 1901 serving 4,236 electric customers. Tipton purchases their power from Indiana Municipal Power Agency. Other Utilities provided are water, wastewater and storm water. Tipton was originally established in 1844 as the “Town of Canton”. When it was discovered that a “Town of Canton” already existed, the city fathers renamed the town after General John Tipton and proclaimed as Tipton ever since. The County was mostly swamp land in the 1840’s but once it was drained, it became some of the most fertile farmland in the state. Tipton has always been recognized for its agricultural background as well as manufacturing. Read More..

Our bodies are essentially machines and when they are not taken care of they begin to break down. This occurs naturally over time with old age, but many millions of people face health issues that are not normal to have and often accelerate the aging process or cause a premature death.
