Your sewer and water utility bill have been mailed to property owners mid-February. All water and sewer bills must be paid in full by August 31, 2017. To receive the 5% discount bills must be paid by March 31, 2017. A payment plan for the current year will only be for a five month period from April 15, 2017 to August 15, 2017. You must sign up for the payment plan each year. Any utilities outstanding after August 31, 2017 will be charged a 10% penalty.

Cost of utilities for property owners

Your sewer and water utility costs are calculated annually based on the actual cost to the Village for providing the services. The cost of these utilities is not included in your taxes. Water rates are unmetered and both water and sewer rates vary depending on the property use – for example, a single family dwelling is billed less than a retail business. Basic connection fees apply to water and sewer, and fees for temporary water shut off’s may also be applicable.

Please refer to the Bylaws and corresponding Schedules below to see the current rates for your annual service and other fees.
