- Only one residence may be claimed for the credit.

- The dwelling unit being claimed must be the applicant's principle residence.

- Applicant's sewer utility payments must be current including any sewer payment plan.

Applications were recently mailed to all residential sewer users.

Applications may also be downloaded from the county's website.

Currently, residents receiving sewer service from the county are charged a flat rate of $45 per unit per month, a rate that has not changed since July 1, 2004.
