The city assesses a water meter installation fee to new development. The fee is intended to recover the cost the city incurs to purchase and install the meter.
Meter related costs include:
- Encoder receiver transmitter (ERT)
- Operator installation costs incurred by the city to install the new development's meter
- labor, transportation, and indirect overhead costs
The fee does not recover the cost associated with installing the service line connecting the meter to the new development's plumbing.
Notice to increase water meter fees effective October 1, 2019.
