My land was served by a community water system approved by the county, and the city is now connecting my area water system to the city system. Do I have to enter into an agreement?
Maybe. When and if you further develop your land, or subdivide, you will be required to enter into an agreement. The act of the city connecting to a water distribution system designed for such a connection will not require Service and Annexation Agreements. Properties may wish to enter into an agreement to achieve 2 separate things:
  1. The city surcharge for water is 1.6 times the rate for utilities delivered in the city
  2. The city will provide both police and fire services to the property
