Beginning next April, the city of San Diego’s water and sewer customers will receive their bills every two months instead of one after the City Council voted today to make the change in an effort to save money.

The city will incur an estimated one-time expense of between $139,000 and $205,000 to set up the new billing method, but it would save $622,000 annually because paperwork and postage would be reduced with the switch, said Mike Bresnahan, the Water Department’s billing director.

The City Council voted 7-0 for bimonthly billing. Councilman Jim Madaffer was absent from the meeting.
