utilitiesUtility Bills & Rates

Most residents are billed for town water and sewer. If you live in Trinity Woods or Charlestown Manor you will receive a town bill for water and a county bill for sewer. Utility Bills are mailed out quarterly within the first 7-10 days of the months of January, April, July and October and are due 30 days from the billing date (not the date you receive them in the mail). If you do not receive your bill by the 15th of the month of the quarter indicated, please contact Town Hall for a duplicate bill.
