WATER/SEWER RATE INCREASE

 

Inactive water taps, whether the taps have been installed or not, will no longer be given a “stand-by” or inactive water rate of $5.00 per month. These taps will be charged the new base rate whether in use or not, to help support the operation and maintenance of the water system. This change reflects current Town Code which

states that “water rental shall commence upon the installation of the user’s tap or the expiration of sixty (60) days from the date of issuance.”
