Water Bill Information
Water Utility Bills are calculated by the amount of water/sewer used in a given month. Flat rate charges are also included on the utility bill such as, Federal Mandates, Trash,Water Debt Retirement, and Sewer Debt Retirement. Review the 2020 Water Rate Resolution and 2020 Sewer Rate Resolution pdfs below for more information determining price per 1000 gallon.
Utility bills are mailed by the 1st of each month and due the 10th of every month. Bills that have an outstanding balance and are not paid in full after the 10th will receive a shut-off notice and will be charged a 10% penalty. Service is subject to shut-off and will be charged a $25 turn on fee.

Tips to Prevent Frozen Water Pipes/Meters
When extremely cold weather is the forecast, we want to offer you some tips on how to prevent your water meter and pipes from freezing. Frozen pipes and a frozen water meter can be very costly to repair so preventative measures are highly recommended.
Please review the list of suggestions below to help ensure that you do not experience lack of running water, or broken or frozen pipes.
- Let cold water drip from the faucet – this helps prevent pipes from freezing because the temperature of the water running through it is above freezing.
- Disconnect outside water hoses – If left connected in freezing temps, water in the hose will freeze and expand causing connecting faucets and pipes to freeze and break.
- Open kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors to allow warmer air to circulate around the plumbing. (Move any harmful cleaners and household chemicals up out of the reach of children)
- Use heat tape – Heat tape is a cord or heat cable with encased electrical wire that when plugged in regulates the temperature around plastic or metal pipes.
