Temporary Residential Wastewater Subsidy Rate Program

The City of Sedona is offering a temporary low-income residential wastewater subsidy rate for qualifying households affected by the COVID-19 virus, starting with the March 2020 billing cycle. This program will be in effect until the State of Arizona and City of Sedona COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted. At such time, monthly wastewater rates will return to previous billed amounts. Those still needing assistance after the COVID-19 restrictions are lifted can apply for the City’s normal low-income subsidy program at that time. The subsidized rate is $32.17 per month.  (The regular residential rate is $61.11 per month.)
