Each metered property will receive one bill except for duplexes with two separate titles and small stratas with four or less units that do not collect strata fees. In these situations the bill will be divided equally among the owners unless the City is advised to alter the allocation.
The City will be implementing metered water billing for properties outside the City boundaries in 2021.
