Why am I being billed year round for secondary water instead of just during usage?

Residents are charged an annual fee to be paid in monthly installments. These fees are used to recover capital cost, expenses, and administrative cost incurred by the City associated with the delivery of secondary water (Municipal Code 13.08.090). The fees are not used to pay for or purchase water, therefore regardless of when secondary water is available during the season, residents are still responsible for their monthly fee.
