2) The sewage treatment rate for residential users monthly is a flat rate of $17.00 per month.

3) Residential garbage is collected once a week. Every Monday unless there is a Statutory Holiday then pick up will follow on the Tuesday. The garbage rate is monthly and is $16.00. In addition, we charge a $5.00 per month Landfill Requisition Fee.

 

Please remember that the utility bills are to be paid by the last Day of the month.

Garbage Preparation Tips

1) Please ensure that the bags are not over 50lbs each or we may have to look at limiting the number of garbage bags per week as well. If the garbage is over 50lbs in weight, we will not pick it up.

2) Garbage and waste must be drained and securely wrapped and properly tied.

Connection and Disconnection Fees

If at any time the Municipal Utility Service is connected or disconnected, there shall be a fee of $50.00.

Deposits

Each new account will require a deposit of $219.00.

Penalty

A 10% penalty will be assessed on all arrears unpaid at the time of the next billing.
