Sewer bills are calculated based on the number of units and property’s water connection.
1. Full-time residents who own property with a private well (or the property is connected to another water system) are charged a flat (un-metered) semi-annual fee of $226.00. These bills are generated and administered by the Tax Dept..
2. Each unit connected to both the City’s water system and the City's sewage system is charged a flat quarterly fee of ($34.00) plus a fee based on water consumption ($4.75 per 100 cubic feet or roughly 0.0064 cents per gallon). These charges are billed by the Water Dept.. The fees are included with the water bill.
A unit is defined as follows:
For residential facilities, apartments and other similar use, each single family living area is one unit (a duplex would be two units, etc.).
For hotels, motels, convalescent homes, hospitals, jails and other similar uses, each room is considered one-half unit.
For industrial and commercial facilities, each building sewer connected directly or indirectly to the public sewer is considered one unit per meter.
