The Usage Charge for the Sewer as a Utility

Operating Budget for Fiscal Year (FY) 2022-2023.

This is the budget that is approved for the time period July 1, 2022 through June 30, 2023. The largest share of income is from usage charges which stands at $460 per year per unit. A household is one unit. See a page created to answer the question, “Why the increase?” The rate was held constant for the prior 3-years, 2017-2020.

However, the use rate will now increase by $20 per year June 2021, June 2022 and June 2023.

There are other minor sources of income coming from late payers. Application fees are charged to properties for engineering, legal and inspection for a specific property that is new or improved on the sewer system.
