The Fairview Township Water Authority will have a rate adjustment for 2018. The cost per 1,000 gallons will increase from $0.05 to $0.08 per 1,000 gallons depending on your usage. This increase is needed for system improvements. The adjustment will be seen in the billing from December 16, 2017 thru March 15, 2018. The minimum bill for 6,000 gallons will go from $32.00 to $32.30. A residence using 10,000 gallons per quarter will see that bill go from $43.68 to $44.18.
The Water Authority will also start charging for delinquent notices that are sent out. EACH NOTICE sent out will cost each recipient $1.75 which will be added to the balance due. A delinquent customer will receive a delinquent notice ten (10) days after the bill due date, if not paid. A second notice will be sent out in twenty (20) days after the due date if no payment is received. If the bill is still delinquent after the second notice, a notice of termination will be posted at the residence for turn off in three (3) days. The termination notice will cost $25.00 and will be added to the balance due.
