If you are getting sewer services from the City of Bryant but your location is not inside the city boundaries, your sewer rate just doubled. The City recently found that those customers were not being charged that double rate according to the 2011 Ordinance that requires it. This will mean a roughly $20 extra added to your bill if you’re one of those customers.
The following is the entire statement from the City:
“Due to an internal review of rate ordinances, the City will now be charging customers receiving sewer services to locations outside of the City limits double the prevailing minimum charge. There will be no change to the excess of 2,000 gallon usage rate.
“This has been in rate ordinances since 2011. Per ordinance 2021-07, the minimum sewer charge is $19.89, and outside city limit customers will now be charged a minimum charge of $39.78. Please be advised that this is NOT a new charge, and the City is following the ordinance that was established in 2021.”
