Billing Information

Billing Information

Your water bill comes once every two months. However, your first bill may be approximately 30-90 days from the start of service.

Your meter will then be read on a 60-day cycle (approximately), and you will receive your bill within seven days after the date of meter reading.



Residential bills consist of four components:

  • Water Use Charge - covers the cost of providing water to your home. Applied to all metered services for standby of water meter and actual consumption of water. Water rates for various rate types are available.
  • Sanitation Charge - Funds City flood control, street sweeping, curb and gutter cleaning, tree trimming, root trimming, and other needed services. (FMC 12.14.010)
  • Trash Collection Charge - We contract with M-G Disposal Services, LLC . for trash. It pays for trash collection services. Multi-family accounts are charged per unit. You will be provided with 3 bins, per unit, on your property (yard waste, recycle, trash). A fee will apply for each additional black trash cart.
  • Sewer Information - View general information on the sewers and information on the Sewer Fee including: Sewer fee calculator, Lifeline Application, Large Lot Application, FAQs
