When is my water meter read for my bill?

The water department reads water meters every month. The city is divided into three sections so that your water meter is read every third month. 


  • All meters west of Grand Street were read in February and your bill was mailed to you the first of March. We will read the meter again in May and the bill will be mailed the first of June.
  • Meters east of Franklin Street were read in January and the bill sent the first of February, we will read these east meters again in April with your bill mailed to you in May.
