Moving Out or Selling? Get a Final Statement

If you are moving out or selling your property, you may request a final billing statement for the utility account. The water utility does not obtain final meter readings for utility bills. The property owner, tenant, or agent should provide the final meter readings if a final billing statement is required.

If the property has an "old meter", it has an active Read O Matic (ROM) device mounted on the outside wall of the property that is wired to the meter in the basement. Properties with ROM devices will require two readings for a final statement to be prepared. A list of the properties with "old meters" can be found in the document center or click link: Old Meter List (PDF). Properties with Radio Read devices or "new meters" may have a deactivated ROM device mounted on the home. The majority of West Allis properties have Radio Read devices installed on the meter. If the property is not listed on the Old Meter List (PDF), then it has a "new meter". 

Properties with Radio Read devices should be pro-rated for closing. Contact the Water Utility Billing office at 414-302-8245 Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. for the billing information if a current bill is not available.

Accurate Payment

Obtaining a final reading statement is the most accurate way to pay your final utility bill. It protects all parties involved from erroneous estimations. Utility bills are created quarterly and sent out the month after the billing period ends. For instructions on obtaining meter readings, read How to Read a Meter (PDF). Request a final billing statement online at Final Bill.

Customer Privacy

We do not disclose customer billing and account information to third parties without express consent from the owner or landlord. As outlined in Act 25, any information that identified a customer by usage or account status (i.e. past due status) is not a public record and can only be released with the customer's permission or to the parties specifically identified within section 196.137(2)(a)-(d). This does still allow information to be provided to the owner of a rental property whose tenant has a delinquent account.

To authorize the West Allis Municipal Water Utility to release account information to a third party (such as a property management company), please complete the consent form.
