WATER: $9.88 for usage of up to 300 cu. ft., SEWER: $26.31, GARBAGE: $13.25,

The sewer charge is a flat rate for residential customers. Commercial customers pay a base rate plus an additional amount based on water usage. Your garbage cans cannot exceed 32 gallons in size. Extra garbage cans can be added for an additional charge per can per month. Please place your house numbers on your garbage cans to help eliminate problems with being charged for extra garbage if someone places either sacks or bags by your garbage cans. Extra garbage is billed at $2.75 per item over the two-can minimum. Garbage pickup can be early in the morning so we recommend that the cans be placed out the night before pick-up. Certain sections of town have Thursday pick-up while others are scheduled for Monday. Contact City Hall to find out which day your address is scheduled. If you are a low-income senior over the age of 65 or low-income disabled, you may qualify for a 25% discount on the utility tax.
Garbage pick-up will be delayed one day on the following Holidays: Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Day and New Years Day.
