NEW WATER METERS FOR SHOREWOOD SUBDIVISION:  We are excited to announce all water customers will be getting new water meters funded via the American Rescue Plan Recovery. The new meters will utilize cellular connectivity to read the meters which will eliminate the meter reader from physically having to read the meters each month.  This will also allow a customer to access their current meter reading information via a website.  At this time, customers can contact the office to schedule their meter replacement.
