Meter readings take place on the 15th of each month and the bills are mailed out the last working day of the month. Payment is due on or before the 15th of the billing month, on the 16th a 20% penalty will be applied to the account. Should the account become two(2) months past due, it will be disconnected for non payment on or about the 17th of the month. If service is disconnected, the total amount due plus the reconnection fee of $75.00 MUST BE PAID to have the services reconnected.
NOTICE: FAILURE TO RECEIVE BILL IN MAIL DOES NOT EXCUSE YOUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR TIMELY PAYMENT, DELINQUENT CHARGES OR RECONNECTION FEES
GRINDER PUMP INFORMATION
All Grinder Pump issues are handled by our Water/Sewer Department which is connected to our Public Works Department.
Important Information - Grinder Pumps
As a notice to our new residents and a reminder to those who have been around awhile, when your electric power is OFF to your house, your grinder pump will not operate.
You must avoid using water during a power outage as the grinder pump tank will only hold about 45 gallons of wastewater and continued use of water may cause wastewater to back up into the house or flow into the yard through the vent pipe. If the electric power goes out, the City will probably have water, HOWEVER, you must keep water usage to a bare minimum.
Also, the maintenance department has advised us that we are experiencing problems with grease build-up in the grinder pumps and sewer lines. The best way to dispose of household grease is to put it out with the garbage rather than pouring it down the drain. This will help to eliminate the grease build-up in the sewer system.
REMINDER: There is a customer cut-off valve between the meter and the house should you experience a leak or busted line and need to cut off the water.
