ORDINANCE #A-2011-06

Set-Up Fee

Property owners who request service with the Utilities shall pay a set-up fee in the amount of $75.00 for each location. Renters shall be charged $75.00 for each location. The fee is collected to offset the cost of setting up the customer at that location on the Utilities records, reading the meter and connecting the service. It is non-refundable and is charged for each location.

Irrigation Meter

Irrigation meters must have backflow testing done once a year. The test needs to be turned into the office within 10 day of turning the system on. Failure to do so will result in the meter being locked until the office receives test results from certified plumber.

Magnolia Water is clean and safe

Minimum Monthly Charges

Each customer shall pay a minimum monthly water charge based on the rate structure, the size of the water meter, and location of meter as follows:

Meter Size Water Use Minimum
5/8" 1,000 gallons
