The meter will need to be read 2 days prior to the closing. The final bill request form can be accessed here /DocumentCenter/View/7606. We will prepare a final bill for pick up at the office or e-mail to the closing company/realtor. Currently there is no charge for final bills.
At this point Laconia Water Department can only accept check or cash for water bills in the office. However, you may pay online by going to Online Payments and choose Water Department Utility Bill. Online payments can be made using debit or credit cards and electronic check. There is a small convenience fee for this service.
There are two parts to the water/sewer bill. The first part is the base rate. A single family house will be billed a $25 base rate per quarter for water and a $42.00 base rate per quarter for sewer. The second charge is the consumption charge. Water is billed at $2.55 per hundred cubic feet and sewer is billed at $5.90 per hundred cubic feet. Each bill will fluctuate due to the amount of water that goes through the meter.
Quick Reference formula for invoice calculation
- (Number of units times $25) plus (consumption times $2.55/hcf) equals quarterly water invoice
- (Number of units times $42.40) plus (consumption times $5.90/hcf) equals quarterly sewer invoice
- (Number of units times rate of fire protection items) equals quarterly fire protection invoice
Note: Franchise areas (specific service areas outside of city limits) are charged a 15 % surcharge for water. Charges are $24.15 base charge and consumption charges of $2.70/hcf. See Tariff for complete rate schedules. Unmetered Sewer Charges are a flat rate of $280.90 and are billed semi-annually by the tax collector.
