Water and Sewer Rates to Increase 1/1/18

The City Council  adopted new rates for water and sewer services and connection fees. For copies of the complete ordinances, click <here for water>, <here for sewer>, and <here for connection fees>. The monthly minimum for customers with water and sewer will increase from $49.45 to $69.31. The monthly consumption allowance (400 cu ft) and the charge for excess water ($.039/cu ft) did not change. All customers with sewer service will see a new $10 fee for Downspout/Sump Pump Connection. This fee can be removed from the customer’s billing if the City is able to verify that the structure’s rain or groundwater collection systems are not being routed to the sewer system. There is relief for  low income seniors that demonstrate income and age eligibility.
