Water meters are read on a monthly basis.  Wastewater charges are based on water consumption.

Service Shut Offs

Service will be subject to disconnect for non-payment of bill, after the 21st of the month. To restore service there is a reconnection fee of $50.00 added to the total sum due.
Service workers will not knock on your door prior to disconnecting your service, and they are not permitted to accept utility payments. However, to reconnect service a responsible party must be home at the time of reconnection.
