Water Shutoffs to Resume July 6 for Delinquent Utility Accounts – Payment Plans Available

The City of Cape Coral will resume water shutoffs on Tuesday, July 6 for any utility account with a balance that is more than 60 days past the bill date.

Cape Coral Population Grew 5th Most in U.S. Since 2010

With less natural population growth and decreased immigration, the population of the United States has been growing more slowly every year since 2015, according to new Census Bureau estimates. In fact, the 0.35% growth rate between 2019 and 2020 represents the lowest growth rate in more than a century. 
America is now an aging nation, as the age brackets for residents 55 and older are expanding at a pace that far exceeds the younger brackets. Over the past decade, the population of retirement-age residents (65 to 74 years old) soared 48.9% according to Census figures, while those 75 or older grew 24.1%, and those 55 to 64 increased 15.3%. In comparison, the total U.S. population increased by just 6.5% over the same time period, with certain age cohorts experiencing a population decline.  Read More
