Sewer Fee Information

In 2019, Shaker Heights City Council approved legislation authorizing new sewer fees to be phased in over four years starting in 2020. The fees will generate a funding stream for long term planning and continued aggressive maintenance of existing sewers and capital costs related to infrastructure, such as new laterals and connections from the sewer main to private property, sewer linings and replacements. This will ensure that the sewer system remains viable for at least another 50 years and beyond.


Mayor Weiss explained the proposed sewer increase in the November 2019 Mayor's Report.
