Sewer Rates

Due to the need for significant upgrades at the Wastewater Treatment Plant, the quarterly sewer rate has been raised from $81.00 to $90.00 per quarter. This increase will help build the capital reserves needed to pay for this project. The rate change will be reflected on the next bill which goes out on July 10, 2015. This sewer rate is still nearly 50% lower than other sewer systems in the area as we have strived to keep costs as low as possible.

Billing Schedule

Bills are sent out to customers once per quarter.
