The office of the Burrillville Sewer Commission is responsible for the collection and receipt of monies due the Burrillville Sewer Commission for sewer use charges and sewer assessments.
Sewer Use Charges
Residential sewer use bills are mailed out every four months. The bills are currently mailed in July, November and March. As of July 1, 2013 the residential rate is currently set at $393.00 per dwelling unit per annum which breaks down to $131.00 per unit/billing. Commercial/Industrial sewer use bills are mailed out quarterly and are based on the water consumption readings obtained from the water districts. These bills are mailed in February, May, August and November. The rate is currently set at $68.55 per 1,000 cubic feet.
Assessment bills are mailed out once a year in the month of July. The assessment is considered a lien against your property until paid in full. Should you sell or transfer your property, the assessment including any suspended amount becomes due and payable in full.
Failure to receive a sewer use bill/assessment bill does not excuse anyone from paying these bills plus penalties. Bills are due and payable on the 30th day of the current month of the bill. Penalty is assessed from the 15th day of the next month.
If you are selling your property, please contact this office to provide us with the new owner's name. This will help to ensure bills are mailed to the current owner and address.
Should a resident be having financial difficulty in meeting the payments, the resident should contact the Commission office at (401) 568-6296 to set up a payment arrangement.
