Your water and sewer bills are based on the amount of water you use. Once the water passes through the meter, the customer has purchased it and it no longer belongs to the city.  Meter readings are collected which determines the amount of water that has been used and the amount that needs to be billed.

Beginning on October 1, 2014, the following rate structures will go into effect.

Sewer charges are also based on the amount of water you use. The base monthly charge for sewer service is $13.00. If you use 1,500 gallons of water or less in a month, this is the total amount you will be charged for sewer service. Each additional one thousand gallons is charged at $4.55. For city sewer customers that are outside of the city limits, multiply these rates by two to determine your charges.

The following is a list of other fees that the city charges in connection with water accounts:

  • Account establishment: $15
  • Deposit - Residential: $75, Rental: $100
  • Deposit - Small commercial: $75
  • Deposit - Large commercial: amount varies according to meter size and usage assumptions
  • Transferring an account: $25 (service at the old address can be left on for two weeks after service is established at the new address)
  • Late payment: 20% of the current charges
  • Meter cut-off for non-payment: $30 ; after 5 pm; $35
