Can I sue a public holding company is small claims court?

There is a dispute over the bills of the past four months, about $200. I've tried to explain to explain to them but their response was to pay or I will receive calls from the collection agency. Although the matter may be resolved more fairly in court, for a lack of better words, which court can I take them to? They are a public company. I've already tried to resolve the matter in person and over the phone.

If you have not paid them, they might sue you. You have no claim that a small claims court can deal with. On the other hand, if you have documented the dispute and they know or ought to know that you do not owe them any money, have good reason for not paying the bills; if they report the unpaid account to a credit bureau you may have a case to take to small claims court.

the courts where you live might have jurisdictional limits, like, say, any dispute up to $1000 goes to small claims court, while cases for $1000 and up go to a higher-level ourt. you would have to find that jurisdictional info from the court--they might have a website which explains it.
