Public Works Utility Billing Rate Schedule 2019

Public Works Utility Billing and Rates

  • All Accounts pay the minimum monthly bill.
  • New AccountsAll new accounts require a signed Residential Service Agreement or Commercial Service Agreement.  This can be done online or in our office.  
  • Sewer Rates:  Sewer rates are based on water use as most water flows into the sewer system. Sewer is billed for each unit of water used unless the property is eligible for summer sewer averaging. 
  • Summer Sewer Averaging:  A monthly average of water consumption for qualifying accounts is calculated based on water usage from the November 1st through May 1st.  This average is used during the summer months as a method designed to eliminate sewer charges for lawn and garden-watering, swimming pools and other similar spring and summer water uses.  New accounts will be assigned "5 units" as the average until it can be recalculated.
