These are the answers to some recent concerns that have been called into the office:

What is the $2.00 meter fee on my blue postcard bill?  For those customers that have the new Automatic Meter Read (AMR) Meters, there is a $2.00 a month meter fee that is added to the monthly water bill.  This fee helps cover the cost of the cell phone technology that is needed to read the meter and the total rebuild of the meter assembly.

What is the $6.36 Annual State Water Testing Fee that is added to the January water bill?  This is a charge by the State of Minnesota under the Safe Drinking Water Act and the full amount of $6.36 per service is paid back to the State of Minnesota.
