2022 Water Consumption Rates


February 2022  Update 

While preparing for the 2022 water rate increase, staff identified an administrative error which prevented the 2021 water rates from being applied. As a result, instead of implementing the $17.52 base rate for potable water for single family homes, rates remained at the 2020 rate of $16.22.

Windsor’s Town Board adopted resolution 2022-06 at the regularly scheduled meeting on Feb. 14 to address this error. The resolution reduced the proposed rate increase for 2022. 

Although our error did not have a negative financial impact for our customers, we do apologize for the confusion and not properly carrying out the plans we created and communicated. We are reviewing our administrative processes to identify what went wrong and how we can prevent it moving forward.
