As a part of securing the current funding and obtaining approval to move forward from the funders,
the County has agreed to implement a $25.00 per EDU / month sewer fee starting in January 2021 and
continuing until December 2022 when we anticipate connections can occur on the first phases.
This fee will be billed quarterly.
