Fire Service Charge

Fire service connections are provided for fire protection only. If a fire service is used for any purpose other than for fire fighting, a minimum charge of $85.00 shall be assessed in addition to the commodity charge for the actual amount of water used.

If a fire service customer uses a fire service for other than emergency fire fighting repeatedly, the customer, upon notice of the water utility manager, may be disconnected from service for violation of the intended use of a fire service connection.
