All bills will have a 10% penalty assessed if payment is not received by the due date specified on the bill. 

***If a water/sewer bill has not been paid within 20 (twenty) days after its due date, the property owner will receive notice that the village will shut off water to the residence after an additional 10 (ten) days has passed. In total, the property owner has 30 (thirty) days after the initial due date to pay off any balance due (with penalty) before water is shut off. If a water/sewer bill is not paid 30 (thirty) days after it is due, the village will shut off water to the residence. This incurs a $30.00 shut-off fee for the property owner. Water service will be restored to the residence when the balance is paid in full. This balance includes the $30.00 shut-off fee, as well as a $30.00 turn-on fee.***

 

WATER TURN ON / SHUT OFF FEES:    The fee to have the water turned on at the curb $30.00

The fee to have the water shut off at the curb $30.00

Final Meter Reading Requests

If you are purchasing/selling/renting a home or business in the Village, contact our office to have a final meter reading done before the sale, or each time a tenant moves out/in.  This will ensure that the proper person is receiving the bill for water consumed at the property location. If the property has been vacant for a long period of time, it is preferable for our Water Department to gain access to the meter inside the home/business to ensure the accuracy of the final bill.  Please call to schedule a time when someone will be able to be at the property location to allow them access.
