The City adopted new sewer rates that became effective July 1, 2013 (per Ordinance 975 N.S (PDF), adopted December 6, 2011).
The new rate for single family homes is the lesser of the current month's water use and the monthly usage basis units multiplied by the usage charge. The monthly usage basis units are calculated in July as the average monthly metered water use from the previous December, January and February billing periods and are used for 1 year.
