Important Information Regarding Sewer Rates
Sewer rates for the remainder of the year are established in the March timeframe, with the January 15- February 15 meter read usage. You may notice an increase/decrease to the sewer rates on your water bill.
If there is a noticeable difference between your usage from January 15 – February 15, compared to your average usage, we will use your monthly average for the colder months to calculate the rate you will pay for the remainder of the year. This calculation method is used both for usage that we find to be too high, and too low.
We appreciate your cooperation!
We will provide a financially effective city government, through accurate fiscal analysis, and sound decision-making, while also maintaining transparency for our city officials, residents, and businesses. We will ensure that our utilities customers are provided with a seamless customer experience.
