City Utility Fee Explanation        

WTR  This charge is for the water that is provided to your house from the city wells via our tanks and water mains.  The charge is a flat $9.00 for the first 2,000 gallons.  Each additional 1,000 gallons is $2.50. 

SWR  This charge is for transporting your sewage waste via our city lines and pumps.  The money we collect pays for pipe and pump maintenance.  The charge for this is half of your water charge or a minimum of $4.50. 

GRB  Residential – We charge $13.50 for once-a-week garbage pickup, brush pickup, mosquito spraying, and street sweeping.  The City provides one container and additional containers may be added for $4.00 per month.

WW  This charge is a flat rate of $5.00 that is set aside to be used for sewer      infrastructure improvements.
