Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) Update 

Currently there are 72 accounts that are non-compliant with the AMI system. Non-AMI compliant meters require the meter to be manually read and the monthly manual meter reading fee is currently $37.90. These fees are calculated on actual cost for equipment and labor to collect monthly reads for utility billing and is divided by the number of non-AMI compliant customers. As the pool of non-AMI compliant decreases the manual meter reading fee increases to cover the associated cost. A large portion of these accounts are vacant homes or businesses and still require monthly manual meter reading. If you are non-compliant and want to avoid the monthly manual meter reading fee, please contact the Water Division at 894-8321.

Rain Garden

Rain Gardens are beautiful landscaping features that manage your stormwater runoff. Their plants and soils absorb water runoff from roofs, parking lots, lawns and roads and help to filter out pollutants before they enter the rivers and streams. Rain gardens are an excellent way to boost your native plant populations as well! By planting a rain garden, you can help to protect local freshwaters by reducing and managing stormwater pollution on your property.
