New Look to Utility Bills
Beginning with the May billing cycle, a new look is coming to your water\sewer bill.
For years your utility bill was printed on a small postcard that generated a number of complaints. They were easy to misplace and the post office sometimes lost track of them, too. They were difficult to read and didn’t give us much opportunity to add useful information or notices.
As part of an across-the-board upgrade of our accounting system we are now able to print our bills on conventionally sized paper and mail them in standard envelopes. This should make them easier for you to keep track of and more understandable. There will be room for seasonal reminders and other messages we hope you’ll find useful.
Your water and sewer rates haven’t changed but the look of your water and sewer bill has. We hope you’ll find the changes to be improvements but if you don’t, let us know and we’ll try to fix it. Click to see the new utility bill. ”Utility Bill Enclosed” is printed on the flap of the envelope as well.

National Safe Boating Week-May 18-24, 2013
Recreational boating is fun and enjoyable, and we are fortunate that we have sufficient resources to accommodate the wide variety of pleasure boating demands. However, our waterways can become crowded at times and be a place of chaos and confusion. While being a marvelous source of recreation, boating, to the unprepared, can be a risky sport. Not knowing or obeying the Navigation Rules or the nautical “Rules of the Road,” drinking alcohol or taking drugs while operating a boat, or choosing not to wear your life jacket when doing so is clearly not the smart thing to do, are all examples of human error or a lack of proper judgment. One particular behavior that can reduce the number of boaters who lose their lives by drowning each year by approximately 80% is the wearing of a life jacket. It is a simple task that has the potential to reduce terrible loss in lives. Knowledge and skills are important in reducing human error and improving judgment. If people are aware of the risk, they are likely to take the precautionary measures to protect themselves and their friends and family. That is why we must continue to spread the messages of boating safety not only during National Safe Boating Week but also throughout the year.
2012 Consumer Confidence Report is available
Each year the Town summarizes the statistics about your water system and publishes the Consumer Confidence Report (CCR). This year the CCR is available on line and will not be mailed to each utility account. Please click for the 2012 Kilmarnock Consumer Confidence Report.
