There are three steps to initiating service:

  2. Pay the service start fee of $20 and the meter deposit fee of $35 (residential users)

  3. Make an appointment for turn on of service and install the water meter (You or your representative must be present).

Termination of Service

When you wish to terminate service, you should contact the Utility Department office and provide the location and the date service is to be terminated as well as a forwarding mailing address for the final bill. Service disconnects are normally performed the next business day

Water Rates

For the first 5,000 gallons of water used, it costs $2.93 per thousand. For the next 10,000 gallons, it costs $2.69 per thousand. These rates decrease with the more usage you have. The sewer rates are $4.30 per thousand, plus a base charge of $3.31.

Monthly Billing
Water meters are read during the first three weeks of each month to establish the billing amount for water and sewer. For the months of June, July, August, and September we have a summer sewer discount so that the water used on lawns and gardens is exempted from sewer charges. The summer sewer discount period begins with the May water meter reading and continues until the September meter reading. Sewer charges for this usage period (July through October bills) are based upon the average of the sewer charges from the non watering months of October through April.

Bills are sent out around the first day of each month. They must be paid no later than the 25th day of the billing month unless the 25th falls on a week-end or holiday, in which case they are due on the next business day. If you do not receive your bill, or you have a question about the charges, please let us know right away. Also, if you have a question on the usage, call us as soon as possible so that we can double check the reading.
