Sewer: Moriah re-evaluated the Sewer Max charges based off Jan- March 2020 for the billing month of March 2021. The sewer max will be re-calculated every January. Bills will look a little high this month for some since we only billed the base charges for January due to the accumulation of snow so your meter reads will incorporate January and February usage and Meter reads will be accurate from here on out.
