Connection to municipal sewer involves several costs: connection cost (also known as an assessment fee), installation costs and usage costs. Once connection is completed there are ongoing usage costs that are billed on a quarterly basis. The usage costs are billed a flat rate, per Residential Equivalent Unit (REU).
REU is basically a single family home - other uses such as businesses, home daycare centers etc will be billed based on the REU assigned to that particular type of use. As of 01/01/2017, the quarterly rate is 94.20 per REU. If you have any questions about your quarterly sewer usage bill please call Laketon Township at 231-744-2454.
