Water and Sewer
These accounts are billed according to your usage in 1,000 gallon increments. Ex: If you use 1950 gallons, you are billed for 1,000. The usage is cumulative. The meters are read around the 20th, mailed on the last day of the month and are due by the 10th. Payments not received by the 10th are considered overdue and a penalty will be added. Any account not paid by the 15th will be disconnected and a fee of $50.00 will be charged to reconnect. Returned checks will be charged a $25.00 service fee. You must have a P.O. Box or a mail receptacle in order to receive your mail. The City is not responsible for the delivery of your bill by the Postal System.
Our garbage service is provided by the Lamar County Regional Solid Waste Authority. They can be reached at 770-358-5215 Monday – Friday between 8-5 or Saturdays between 8-12 noon. The pick-up day in Milner is Friday. Please have your container on the street the night before to ensure pick-up.
Sewer Clean Outs
The sewer clean out plug, as depicted above, is in every yard and is connected to the city sewer. It is there in case the homeowner has a sewer stoppage, if applicable. If it is crushed or cut by a mower, please call the city for a replacement. We do not need foreign objects or even rain water to get into the sewer line.
