Rate Schedules & Information

New water and sewer rates are as follows:

Per 1,000 GallonsCurrent 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 $5.71 per 1,000 gallons.
  • Sewer Rates: The sewer rate is $5.47 per 1,000 gallons.

This brings the total for water and sewer charges to $11.18 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.

Availability Charge

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 ChargesBi-Monthly (Current)
less than or equal to 3/4-inch meter$10.68
1-inch meter$15.26
1.5-inch meter$30.48
2-inch meter$48.76
3-inch meter$94.00
4-inch meter$152.00
6-inch meter$308.00
