Billing Details

Water Bills
A water bill is calculated based on actual usage. The City has adopted water rates to recover the cost of providing water service to its customers. A $9.65 base amount is charged to all customers and includes 1,000 gallons of water. All consumption in excess of 1,000 gallons is charged at a rate of $4.60 per 1,000 gallons.

Example: Family A uses 15,000 gallons of water monthly. The water bill for Family A is calculated as follows:
Charge Type Dollar Amount Charged
Base Amount (1,000 gallons) $9.65
14,000 Gallons (14 x $4.60) $64.40
Total Water Bill $74.05

Sewer Bills
A sewer bill is calculated on actual usage subject to a maximum consumption level. The City has adopted sewer rates to recover the cost of providing sewer service to its customers. A $11.80 base amount is charged to all customers and includes 1,000 gallons of water. All consumption in excess of 1,000 gallons, up to a maximum of 8,000 gallons, is charged at a rate of $4.00 per 1,000 gallons. 

Example: Family A uses 15,000 gallons of water monthly. The sewer bill for Family A is calculated as follows:
Charge Type Dollar Amount Charged
Base Amount (1,000 gallons) $11.80
7,000 Gallons (7 x $4) $28.00

Even though Family A used 15,000 gallons of water, the sewer bill is limited to the first 8,000 gallons of consumption.
