Per Ordinance, residential sewer rates are set with the April bill (March billing cycle) and based on the average of your first three months water usage of the year and that rate is carried thru the December of the current year. When purchasing a new residence or moving into a new residential property during the year policy is that your sewer rate is set based on the first full month of usage until your rate can be set per ordinance.
