Billing Process and Rates

 


 

The Billing Process

 

Iron Mountain is split into four utility billing sections.  Sections 1, 2, and 3 are billed bi-monthly.  Section 4 is for businesses and is billed monthly. Map

 

Approximate Section Sizes: Section 1 includes 1235 locations, section 2 includes 1130 locations, section 3 includes 1020 locations, section 4 includes 160 locations.  
 

The City has one meter reader who walks door to door to visit each home and business within the City.  Each location is an actual read, the City does not currently estimate any billings.  A hand held read device records the read data from each location.

The hand held is returned to the office and data is imported into our processing software.

 

Each section has it’s own reading and billing schedule.  Once the meter reader is finished reading all locations in a section the Utility Billing Clerk begins the billing process and produces water bills to be mailed.
