City of Monticello Public Works Department will begin charging the secondary water system on April 26, 2010 (weather permitting). On or before that date, residents should check to ensure that secondary valves are closed to prevent flooding and promote water conservation. 

Residents are encouraged to use water conservation methods in their use of secondary water this spring to ensure a water availability later in the season.

Monticello City would also remind citizens that secondary water service is no longer mandatory for residents. At a citizen’s written request, services will be discontinued (forms are available at the City office).  If a customer has disconnected secondary water services and wishes to have service reconnected, they will complete an application for connection and pay a reconnection fee (currently $80.00) to reinstate the service.

Also effective April 1, 2010, secondary water users with a one-inch connection will be charged $25.20 from April through September instead of $12.60 from April through March. Annual customers will continue to pay $151.20 for the year, due in April.

The new billing schedule more closely corresponds with the secondary water’s schedule for use; it is generally turned on mid-to-late April and turned off around mid-October.  A schedule of fees for larger connections is available at the City Offices.

Secondary water customers with questions are encouraged to call the Monticello Public Works Department at 587-3730, or are invited to visit the City offices.
