WATER & SEWER UTILITY RATES  

On October 12, 2015, the city council raised water and sewer rates through the adoption of Ordinance 2015-187. Those rates became effective on November 1, 2015 and first appeared on the December 2015 billing. 

The city's utility rates had not be otherwise been adjusted since October 28, 2013 (Ordinance 2013-147) effective November 1, 2013.

All water and sewer rates are based on the volume of water used, measured in thousands.

The base rate (minimum billing) for residential water and sewer customers is $39.00 per month plus fees for trash collection and recycling. Sales tax is collected only on the trash collection portion of the bill.

When a customer exceeds 2,000 gallons of water use in a billing cycle (month) an incremental charge is added for each 1,000 gallons or portion thereof above the first 2,000 gallons.

Here are example rates for five different levels of consumption:
 
Gallons Used Water Fee Sewer Fee Total
2,000 $21.50 $17.50 $39.00
4,000 $35.70 $17.50 $53.20
6,000 $50.30 $18.50 $68.80
8,000 $65.30 $20.50 $85.80
10,000 $80.30 $22.50 $102.80
