WATER AND SEWER RATE INCREASED EFFECTIVE ON MARCH BILLING:Water and sewer rates increased effective on the March 31, 2023, billing, according to the master fee schedule.
RESIDENTIAL GARBAGE RATE WILL INCREASE EFFECTIVE ON JANUARY BILLING: Residential garbage rates increased on the January 31, 2024, billing. The residential garbage rate increased from $14.34 to $14.77, and the extra cart fee increased from $5.55 to $5.71. These rates are subject to sales tax.
WINTER AVERAGING OF RESIDENTIAL SEWER CHARGES: Residential sewer charges will be calculated based on the consumption method for the December, January, and February billing statements for winter averaging. Please note that the consumption used during the winter averaging months determines your maximum sewer charges for the remaining months of the year. If you are a new customer to the City of Red Oak and an average cannot be determined, the Citywide average will be assigned to your account. After the averaging period, the billing method will be switched back to the winter average. This means that for the remaining months of the year, your account will be billed based on consumption up to the winter average, which serves as a cap.
The City of Red Oak adopted a tax rate that will raise more taxes for maintenance and operations than last year's tax rate. The tax rate will effectively be raised by 5.38 percent and will raise taxes for maintenance and operations on a $100,000 home by approximately $-40.57.
