A Reminder for Residents
If you intend to leave your premises for some extended time period (less than 180 continuous days in duration), the City will continue to charge you the bi-monthly water and sewer utility base rate in your absence. If you intend to leave your premises for an extended period of time [more than 180 continuous days] you may request the City shut off your water meter during this time period. The City will charge you a $60 turn-on fee but you will not be subject to the monthly base water and sewer rate during that time frame.
If you return prior to this time period you will be subject to all monthly base water and sewer charges incurred in the interim. If you are away from your premises for more than 180 continuous days but did not make prior water shutoff arrangements, yet continued to pay your monthly water and sewer utility bills, you may seek a credit for payments made during your departure.
