Single-Family Residential, Tier 4 (10,001 or greater square feet of impervious area) — the annual fee will be calculated based on one billing unit per 2,000 square feet, multiplied by $4.81 for quarterly then multiplied by four for the annual fee.

For all other properties (Other Tier 4, including condos, multifamily units (greater than two units), industrial and commercial properties, the annual fee will be calculated based on one billing unit per 2,000 square feet, multiplied by $4.81 for quarterly, then multiplied by four for the annual fee.

During its meeting on Jan. 23, the Select Board approved the rates and regulations. The next step will be to set up a billing master account file.

Funds generated will help the DPW maintain the town’s network of sewers, drains, culverts and other infrastructure.

The rates will go into effect on July 1.
