SEWER USAGE CHARGES
The Tax Office bills and collects for sewer usage. Sewer usage bills are mailed at the end of September each year. These bills are due October 1st, payable IN FULL by the first business day of November. To avoid a penalty, payment must be postmarked, hand-delivered or made online by the first business day of November. Payments made after the first business day of November will incur interest at the rate of 1.5% per month calculated back to the October 1st due date (interest charge in November is 3%; 1.5% for December, 1.5% for January).
If your home or commercial building is connected to the Town of Canton’s sewer system, you are charged annually for sewer usage. Residential properties are charged a flat rate per living unit. Commercial buildings are charged based on water consumption figures provided by the water company.
If I demolish my house, how do I discontinue the services?
Once the demolition permit is pulled and the Building Official verifies in writing to our office that the structure was successfully taken down, we will pro-rate (and refund, if applicable) any charges accordingly.
I spend several months out of state. Do I have to pay a full year of service?
Yes. Service is not pro-rated when the house or building is vacant.
