Many Seniors use at or just below 3,000 gallons per billing cycle. To assist those Seniors with lower incomes, the Senior Freeze Minimum Bill (first 3,000 gallons) is $26.94. The rate over the first 3,000 gallons is the same as the regular Residential rate.
Qualifying for both the Senior Freeze minimum SEWER AND WATER rate is the same as qualifying for the Senior Freeze Garbage Rate. If you are receiving a Senior Freeze exemption on the second installment of the most recent real estate tax bill, then you will qualify for both the Senior Freeze Minimum and the Senior Freeze Garbage rates. If you are currently receiving the Senior Freeze Garbage Rate you need not do anything to receive the Senior Freeze Minimum Sewer & Water rate.
Please note that renewal for these rates is not automatic and must be applied for each year. If you’re not sure if you qualify please contact the Water Department at 847-455-8616.
