Moving Out or Selling?
If you are moving out or selling your property, you may request a final billing statement for the utility account. The water utility can obtain final meter readings for utility bills, but there is a $50.00 fee for this service and we may need to access to the basement. The property owner, tenant, or agent may also 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 or for the latest bill information to be provided to calculated a pro-rated amount. 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. If a final billing statement is needed, then there is a $50.00 charge to send this by email, fax, mail or for pick-up. Contact the Water Utility Billing office by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 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.

NEW OWNERS (UPDATE UTILITY ACCOUNT)
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.
