Sewerage and Water rates

Is anyone concerned about the billing practices of New Jersey American Water?????
Sea Isle City, our neighbor is not billed this way.  I was told on two occasions that Ocean City Administration wants it this way and gets a cut….unbelievable….I wish Fairness in Taxes would get involved?

The reason why Steef is that your consumption is more or less constant throughout the year. You're not paying a premium for the spike in water usage in the summer all year long. Anyway thanks for the insight. I'd be interested in hearing from property owners that do rent their place in the summer.

OK there is information as to how this works on the City website. Also rates for 2011. You were billed $1.81 per 1,000 gallons for fresh water and $29.23 per 1,000 gallons of waste water. The months of July, August, and September are used to determine what you are billed the remainder of the year for sewer. I'm going to see if I can find sewer rates for neighboring municipalities. Waste water treatment is handled by CMCUA.

Compliments to SICTA, the FIT of SIC for the info they provided. Sewer rates for SIC are $17.01 per 1,000 gallons in the summer months and $.79 per 1,000 gallons the rest of the year.

Wow Eric, Good work! I'm planning to attend the 2/19 meeting in Ocean City with the Utilities Board. I have a copy of the CMCMUA Charge System Rate Setting Report, effective 1/1/2013 which also projects for the coming years….will bring a copy for you if you decide to attend….Councilman DeVlieger is Council's representative.
