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.
