Water & Sewer Bills
The City provides water and sewer utility service to approximately 6,700 accounts. Meters are read and entered into handheld recorders. The meter readings are transferred into our accounting system, which produces billing statements weekly. For most of the accounts, water consumption for the month is based on a single meter reading, while others are based on multiple meter readings. These readings are used for the calculations during billing.
Charges for water, as set by City Ordinance, are based on consumption amounts. Minimum charges are based on the size of the service line from main to meter, and entitle the user to a set quantity.
Residential sewer rates are a set fee per month, based on the winter average of water consumption. Commercial sewer rates entitle the user to a set quantity of water. Like the water charges, an additional fee is charged for sewer, based on water consumed above the minimum quantity allowed per month.
