Current Rates

Monthly Residential Rates

The city has adopted new billing procedures that affect the appearance of your utility statement, specifically the Garbage Disposal and Residential Recycling fees. Both fees have been combined so customers will see one line item, instead of two. The billing change is designed to increase efficiency. Learn about the new procedures in Important Changes to Your Utility Bill.
