Sewer Service – The City of Saginaw uses a winter average calculation to determine this monthly charge. The water usage for the months of November, December, and January are added together. This sum is then divided by three, which gives you the winter average. A new resident is charged based on the average of 8,000 gallons until they have had water service through the three months used to calculate the winter average. This calculation method and average are both set by City Ordinance as adopted by the City Council.

Beautification Contribution –This is a contribution of $1.00 to be used for the beautification of the City. The City has a Beautification Committee that oversees this fund and determines what improvements will be made. This contribution is on all new accounts and is voluntary. If you do not wish to participate, please make that request in writing and we will take this off of your account.  For more information about the Saginaw Beautification Committee, click here.
