RATE REDUCTION AND ELIMINATION FOR PROPERTIES THAT DO NOT PRODUCE SEWAGE
Shortly after the monthly billing began in the middle of 2015 the district was starting to receive calls from property owners asking – why do I have a sewer bill when no one has used the property in years or I tore the house down last year or I’m going to tear it down and why should I pay a sewer bill. The district reviews these claims and found them to have merit, they also, found that all measures were taken to try in avoiding these types of claims. Anyway, the district reviewed their options on this matter and adopted an ordinance for a policy concerning reduction in billing for properties that does not produce sewage. This policy relates to reduction or elimination in billing and address it in a fair and lawful manner and gives direction how to get approval for one of these polices.
