Extra Water Taps:  Billed and served at the same rate and allowance as similarly sized water connections.

Extra taps will not be billed during months in which no water flow is measured through respective meters.

Fire Hydrant Water:  The rate for water used by companies, excluding City and County Road & Fire Departments, shall be 1.5 times the 0.75” line water base rate for every 10,000 gallons purchased.

Monthly Inactive Fee (Water) :  $18.00 when water is off at the meter 

New User Deposit:  New users shall pay the equivalent of two months service for respective water and/or sewer services.  Click here for information on new connections and to activate service.

Water Service Turn-on  Fee:  An account that has been turned-off either by request or by failure to pay is still billed the monthly inactive water fee.  To have the water meter turned on the account will be charged a fee of $65 plus the account holder will need to pay any outstanding balance in full.
