Sewer Rates (New Rates Effective 1/1/23)
The sewer rate is $7.91 per thousand gallons. The City passed a new Ordinance in February allowing for a summer sewer rate. During the months of November to April, your sewer use is based on your water usage for that month. For the months of May through October, a summer sewer rate is calculated on average usage for the prior 6 months (Nov - Apr). This is beneficial to residents because it allows them to water their lawns and gardens during the hotter months and avoid paying a large sewer rate.
