2018 Water, Sewer & Trash Rates

Utility Bills are mailed the last business day of every month. The amount due is for the previous month and is due on the tenth (10th) of the following month. To avoid a penalty, please make sure your bill is paid by the twentieth (20th) of the month following the bill.
Water meters are read each month to determine your water usage. The previous month’s reading, current month’s reading and current usage, along with the date read, are listed at the top of the bill on the left stub under the meter number. The majority of our meters are read via a radio signal so there is little possibility of an erroneous read. If you feel a reading is incorrect, please contact the Town Hall at (970) 276-3741.

Sewer rates are calculated each year in January and are based on the prior year’s water usage. The usage for the following months of January, - April and October - December are averaged. This method is used as water is not being used during these months for irrigation of outdoor plants and lawns, which does not impact the sewer system. The rate stays fixed at this calculated amount until the following calendar year.
DISCONNECT NOTICE
If the account balance is delinquent for two (2) consecutive months, you will receive a Disconnect Notice around the twentieth (20th) of the month. This Notice will reflect the total amount due and a final payment/shut off date. A disconnect fee of $30 plus a reconnect fee of $30 for a total of $60 will be incurred for all water services that are terminated from a disconnect Notice.
