The potable water, wastewater, and reclaimed water utility systems owned by the City of Red Oak are supported entirely by the revenues earned from the operations of those systems (collectively, the“Utility System”). The City of Red Oak sets the fees and charges that may be assessed Utility System customers (or the methodology by which such fees and charges will be automatically adjusted) via formal resolutions adopted by its City Council. All such current fees, charges, and methodologies are incorporated in the Schedule of Rates & Fees below.
Sewer caps have been added to City of Red Oak residential utility accounts based on the average consumption used during the months of December, January and February. Sewer service is billed based on consumption up to the winter average for the months of March through November.
