Frequently Asked Questions

Where does the Town water come from?

What time frame does my bill cover?
Starting on January 1, 2012, the water and sewer billing will be quarterly for all residential customers and some commercial customers. High commercial customers will continue to be billed monthly. Each quarterly billed meter will be charged $30.00 per quarter and each monthly billed meter will be charged $10.00 per month, plus the usage based on the chart listed under the “Fee Schedule” link. All bills will be due in thirty (30) days.
