The Town Council recently amended the Water Ordinance ( Article III, Section 3-5, Swimming Pools) to change the procedure to receive a credit for sewer fees upon filling or topping off a swimming pool. The new policy reads as follows:
Any user who is connected to the town water and sewer system and wishes to use public water to fill a private swimming pool shall be charged the prevailing rate for water and sewer usage. A user who fills their pool (hot tubs excluded) with town water is eligible for one annual credit of $50.00. The user must request the credit from the Town Office, annually, before July 15th. The credit will appear on the user’s next regular utility bill.
If you have any questions, please call the Town Office at (540)338-2811.
