Understanding Your Utility Bill

The monthly utility bill provides detailed information about individual accounts and includes charges for water usage, wastewater charges, storm water fees, and taxes and protection fees. The bills are based upon water usage. Water usage is measured in 100 gallon increments.

Wastewater Charges

The basis for wastewater charges for residential users shall be the actual water used for the months of December, January, February and March. Any residential user that does not have service established for those 4 winter months shall pay wastewater charges based upon the city average until a new water average is available. Businesses are based on each month's usage.
