At a Public Hearing on November 1, 2017, the City Council approved establishing new water and sewer rates. These new rates will be effective January 1, 2018. Global Water will continue to bill customers on a bi-monthly basis for water and sewer services. Residents will see the new water and sewer rates for January 2018 service on their bills around March 2018. While the water rates for the residential customers are increasing, the sewer rates will be slightly lower than the what the current residential customers are currently paying. The sewer bills for the commercial customers will be based on actual water consumption instead of a fixed monthly charge. Small businesses using less water will see a slight decrease in their sewer bills, however businesses using more water will see an increase in their sewer bills.
