Westlake Town Council Adopts Utility Rate Increase for October 1
Posted September 6, 2022

The new increase will be approximately 5% across the board.
The new rates take effect October 1, 2022 & will first appear on your October bill, which will be issued on November 8th. To view the new rates, click here.

Taking Care of our Sewer Lines
Now that many of us are spending more time at home, a friendly reminder to take care of our sewer & septic systems. Here’s a list of things we should not flush down the toilet:
- Paper towels
- Baby wipes or cosmetic wipes
- Feminine hygiene products
- Cotton balls
- Cotton swabs
- Dental floss
- Contact lenses
- Kitty litter
These are all things that could cause expensive damage or clogging to our sewer collection systems. Such damages would be 100% preventable by following these guidelines. It’s important that we all work together during this time to keep our community functioning.
