General

For residential and non-residential consumers using municipal water without a water meter, the annual flat rate charge per unit for water/wastewater shall be $1,765.00.

The unit rate for non-residential customers will be based on the unit count as determined by By-Law #2005-11.

For the purpose of partial billings, the base supply charge will be calculated based on the bimonthly billing period of 61 days except for the period from January-February where that time period will be recognized as 60 billing days. During a Leap year, January – February will be recognized as 61 billing days.

Upon the Building Department’s successful (“passed”) inspection of a water service connection, the temporary construction rate (noted above) shall commence being charged to the property.

Third Time Inspection Fee

A third time inspection fee of $75.00 will be charged if Public Works staff attends the same property for the same complaint upon a third visit.

Improper Installation

An incentive rate shall be charged for the improper installation of a meter or installation of a non-functioning meter. The incentive rate shall be double the base rate and shall be charged to the property one month after the municipality has verified the improper installation.

Flat Rate Charge

For a single family residential unit, where the Town has determined a meter cannot be installed for any reason, a flat water and sewer rate will be charged based on current rates applied against an average level of household consumption.
