*Residential Water Rate in City limits:  1 Unit = 100 cu. ft. =  748 Gallons.  This water usage rate is added to your base water meter surcharge depending on the size of the meter.

If you have a lot of miscellaneous garbage/junk that will not fit in garbage toter call Bertolotti Disposal at 1-800-221-1257.


Bertolotti Disposal provides two customer scheduled bulky item pick ups per calendar year.  To schedule your pickup, please contact Bertolotti Disposal Service at 1-800-221-1257. The following requirements of the residential pickup program are as follows:

  1. Place your unwanted items (junk) out the night before your pickup day, (if put out earlier, it will be picked up and resident will be charged.)
  2. No cement, dirt, tires, TV's, computer monitors or hazardous waste.
  3. Household appliances must have Freon taken out.
  4. Tree branches cannot be longer than 5 feet.
  5. All loose materials (clothes must be in container boxes, which cannot exceed 50 lbs.)
  6. The maximum a resident may set out is 3 cubic yards (approximately 24 bags or a 3'x3'x9' area).






Around the middle of December your water meter is read.  The water usage is calculated from the last meter read to the new meter read.  This water usage, plus the meter fee, the sewage fee, and the garbage fee, comprises the charges for December.  These December charges are billed and mailed the first week of January.  This is your January bill.  You have until the last day of the month, of January, to pay this bill.


If payment isn't received by the last day of the month of January, a 15-Day Notice is printed on your February bill, which is mailed out the first week of February.  Your February bill will show the balance of your past due January bill plus your current February bill.  


The 15-Day Notice generates a $10.00 Late Fee.  You have until February 15th to pay the previous January bill plus the late fee.  If this is not paid by the 15th there is a second $10.00 Late Fee, and a 48-Hour Notice is generated.  To keep service from being shut off you'll need to pay the previous January bill plus the late fees before the date on the 48-Hour Notice.  If this is not paid before the date indicated on the 48-Hour Notice, the utilities are shut off.   Once the utilites are shut off, there is an additional $20.00 administrative charge applied to balance.  The previous unpaid January bill plus all late charges must be paid to restore service.


This process repeats itself every month.  If you have any further questions, please call Utilities at (209) 895-8040.
