Why are we being billed for a service that we are not receiving yet?

State Statute allows the Sewer District to begin billing the full rate as soon as the project begins. For Project 1, the interim rate of $27.35 was imposed beginning December of 2016. The full rate of $93.30 will be imposed for the month of June 2017. Additional information regarding the rates can be found under Ordinance 2016-1.
