Most of you have received a final sewer bill from Envrolink, and you may have been confused by the amount. The bill is over 50 percent more than you normally pay. This does not reflect an increase in fees. Although the bill states that it is for services from November 13 to December 13, the bill actually covers service until the end of December. It is the last bill you will receive from Envirolink. On January 1, service will be taken over by Fitch Utilities (see article in the upcoming newsletter concerning developments in wastewater service). If you pay by credit card and incur an additional “convenience” fee, it will have increased as well.

Charges for 2021 through Fitch Utilities will be the same as they have been for this year.
