Rate Schedules & Information
New water and sewer rates are as follows:
|Per 1,000 Gallons||Current Rate|
In October of 2011, the Village implemented a five-year rate increase program to cover the necessary operating cost and the costs associated with much-needed infrastructure maintenance and improvements.
Meter Reading & Billing
Water meters are read and billed bimonthly.
- Water Rates: The water rate is $5.54 per 1,000 gallons.
- Sewer Rates: The sewer rate is $5.31 per 1,000 gallons.
This brings the total for water and sewer charges to $10.85 per 1,000 gallons.
Senior / Disabled Discount
Water usage above 4,000 gallons will be charged at the regular rate. The Senior/Disabled discount allows up to 4,000 gallons of water for $8.25 per bill. Sewer services for Seniors/Disabled are billed according to the rate chart.
In addition to the listed user charges, customers also pay a bi-monthly availability charge of $5.34 for water and $5.34 for sewer. The structure of availability charges is also changing. Currently, the availability charge is the same for all users. Beginning August 1, 2012, availability charges will be based upon a customer's meter size and capacity requirements of the system.
Consequently, unmetered private fire suppression water systems are subject to availability fees, too. The new structure is outlined in the table:
|Water & Sewer Availability Charges||Bi-Monthly (Current)|
|less than or equal to 3/4-inch meter||$10.68|
