  3. What are the annual fees?
    The annual fee for a vacant lot is currently $150.00 per lot for availability of service.
    The fees are charged semi-annually with the first payment being due on March 1 and the second payment being due on September 1. The semi-annual due dates were put in place to allow customers the flexibility to pay the annual amount in two installments.

  4. Why do I have to pay an annual fee when I am not hooked up to any water or sewer services?
    The District has 65 miles of distribution system and 45 miles of collection system lines designed to provide 2360 lots water and sewer service. Regardless of each lot owner’s decision to connect to the system, the capital infrastructure provides a benefit through its availability to the lot and lot values are enhanced as a result of this availability.

    The AOS fee is specifically used to repay debt incurred for capital infrastructure which has been financed by the District. Although customers paying the AOS fee are not connected to the capital infrastructure, the cost of the capital infrastructure must be appropriately distributed among those who are connected and receiving service, and those who are receiving the benefit of the availability to receive water and sewer service.

  5. What is the minimum fee for water and sewage?
    The minimum fee for water is $28.00 per month.
    The minimum fee for sewage is $28.00 per month.
    The minimum fee will apply regardless of service being on or off.
