How do you calculate my utility bill?
Utility bills are determined by the amount of water that passes through your water meter multiplied by the current water and sewer rates. For example, if you receive a bill and in the “current usage” column you were billed for 7 units of water, we would calculate your monthly bill as follows:
$31.57 - Water Rate 7 x 4.51
$34.02 - Sewer Rate 7 x 4.86
$1.59 - Typical Meter Charge
$12.91 - Garbage Collection Fee
$29.08 - Stormwater Runoff
$109.17 - TOTAL
Effective July 1, 2021: Water and Sewer rates were approved by City Council on June 21, 2021. Stormwater treatment cost is displayed as an individual line item on all customers water bills. For more information on our stormwater billing changes, visit this webpage.
