Connection Rate Increase–Red Dot Properties
On July 12, 2007, the Provincetown Water and Sewer Board held a public hearing and voted, pursuant to MGL c. 83, §16, to increase the connection surcharge rate from the current rate of $39.08/gallon of Title 5 flow to $45.00/gallon. On August 27, 2007 the Provincetown Board of Selectmen voted, pursuant to MGL c. 40, §22F, to approve the recommendation of the Water and Sewer Board effective November 1, 2007. This rate change affects only those Red Properties who have not connected to the sewer and who have not voluntarily begun paying a sewer connection surcharge. Red properties who connect to the sewer—or who agree to be assessed a connection surcharge—prior to November 1, 2007 shall be assessed at the current rate. Connections and requests for assessment of a sewer connection surcharge after November 1, 2007 shall be at the new rate. Inquiries may be directed to the Department of Public Works.
