Sewer Rate Calculation

Fixed Residential Rates

The utility department bills all residential accounts a fixed sewer rate. The fixed rate is based on winter averaging water consumption. When you open a new account you will pay a sewer rate equal to the City’s average residential rate until you have established your own rate. This rate is calculated annually based on water consumption during the months of December, January, and February.

New sewer rates become effective on the March billing cycle each year. 

Requesting Sewer Rate Adjustments

If you have a leak during the averaging months, you may request a review of your new sewer rate.  In order to be considered for a manual adjustment, you must provide copies of your repair bill(s) to the Utility Billing Department with a written request for your average rate to be adjusted.   Adjustment requests may be submitted from January 25 to April 25.

You can submit this request after January’s billing through April 25th of each year.

Commercial Rates

Sewer charges for commercial accounts are based on the actual water consumption each month.
