Reading Your Utility Billing
How much is a utility bill?
The total cost of your utility bill depends on water consumption. In addition to the consumption charges there are also fixed charges.
Consumption Rate: $4.00 per one thousand gallons for usage of 9,001 gallons and up (per quarter)
Water fixed charge: $80.00 (0 to 9,000 gallons) per quarter
Sewer fixed charge: $40.00 per quarter
Infrastructure fixed charge:$20.00 per quarter
Loraas Roll-Out Wate & Recycle Cart fixed charge: $45.00 per quarter
(Note: Commerical business’ are charged differently than residential consumers, for more information, please contact the Town Office)
How is your water bill calculated?
Your water meter measures the water consumed in gallons. The amount of water your residence or business consumes is multiplied by the current water and sewer rates.
Am I still charged if I don’t use any water?
There is a minimum cost charged to be able to supply water services to your property even if no water is actually used. This is the fixed charge for the water and sewer system.
If you are going to be absent from your residence for an extended period of time, the service can be disconnected at the curbstop and then reconnected upon your return. There is an associated cost with the disconnect and reconnect. Once the curbstop is shut off, you will not receive a bill for the fixed charges. Contact the Town Office for further information.
Why did my water get disconnected?
If you have a utility billing in arrears, the Town of Wolseley may disconnect water at any time, without notice. If your water is disconnected for non-payment, the utility billing must be paid to current plus an additional $25.00 before it will be reconnected. We strongly encourage consumers to keep in contact with the Town Office if they are having financial complications that do not allow them to pay their utilities in full. The Town Office is amenable to payment arrangements, and encourages consumers to make monthly payments to keep accounts current to avoid any water service disruptions.
