Sussex Council has approved an amendment to the water and sewer by-laws of the former Town of Sussex (Ward 1) and the former Village of Sussex Corner (Ward 2). The fee schedules have established universal fees for all residential and commercial customers connected to the municipal water distribution and sanitary sewer collection systems. An equitable service fee will now be applied to all areas of service in the new municipality of Sussex effective January 1, 2023.
The new user fees are a combined water and sewer annual flat rate in the amount of $450 per residential user. Those with metered rates will see an equal increase of 2.2%.
Sussex is establishing a universal billing system. To facilitate the change, the timing of invoices will be adjusted for all flat rate users. Those in Ward 1 have already been billed to April 30, 2023, and those in Ward 2 have been billed to March 31, 2023, all at the 2022 rates.
Ward 1 flat rate users will be billed for five months on May 1, 2023, with a retroactive adjustment. Ward 2 will receive a six-month bill on April 1, 2023, with a retroactive adjustment. All flat rate users in the new community will receive bills every six months beginning October 1, 2023.
There is no change to the quarterly schedule for metered users.
