One of the most frequently asked questions by residents is how the rates for utility bills are set. It is important to note the Town purchases its water from Miami-Dade County. Therefore, Surfside does not control the rates.
Furthermore, Surfside sends its sewage for treatment to the City of Miami Beach, which controls the rates of this service. Similar to the water bill, Surfside residents are charged accordingly to pay for the fees.
Dedicated to continually enhancing quality of life, Surfside also provides residents with garbage pick-up five days a week, whereby most cities only pick up garbage twice a week. As a consequence, the garbage bills in Surfside are higher than they would be at a service level that is less.
