Rate Structure Update
The Board of Trustees initiated a comprehensive rate study that began in May 2022. A Resident Roundtable was created to inform a new rate structure. The rate structure impacts how revenue is recovered through base rates, usage rates, or tiers. Changing the structure of water and sewer rates may increase or decrease your water bill depending on usage and your water tap class. The following meetings will include valuable information and ways to engage and share your perspective.
Utility Rate Structure Work Session - Sept. 20, 2022
The Resident Utility Rate Roundtable will present their recommended utility rate structure to the Board of Trustees. Following the rate structure recommendation, staff will present the 2023 Public Works Draft Budget.

Sewer Rate Increase - Adopted Feb, 8, 2022
All water customers in Wellington have meters. Your monthly bill includes a service line fee (base rate) and a use charge for the water that passes through your water meter.
Your cost for the water that you send down the drain to the Waste Water Treatment Plant is calculated annually, usually based on the average amount of water consumed as reflected on your January, February, and March utility bills. These 3 winter months were chosen so customers would not be charged for treated water used outdoors. From time to time we do a 4 month average which would include your December utility bill. If you water your lawn in the winter, the water used is included in your average. For new and transferring customers, the sewer charge is set at the town average of $27.13.
