Billing Cycle:

Residential customers are billed bi-monthly.  Large consumer/commercial customers are billed monthly.  All bills are due upon receipt and payment must be received before 5:00 p.m. twenty-one days after the billing date.  A ten percent penalty is added to current charges on the twenty-second day after the billing date.  Failure to receive a bill does not excuse the penalty charge.

Timeline for the Utility Billing Process:

Day One - Bill is Mailed
Day Twenty-One - Current Amount Due
Day Twenty-Two - Penalty Added
Day Thirty - Reminder Notice Mailed
Day Thirty-Five -  Shut-off Notice Delivered
Day Thirty-Seven - Termination of Service

Water and Sewer Rates and Minimum Charge:

Water and sewer rates are based on usage of 1,000 gallons.  Water is billed at $10.81 per 1,000 gallons used while sewer charges are $1.15 per 1,000 gallons billed.  The minimum bi-monthly bill is based on 3,000 gallons and is billed at $35.88.

Payments are accepted at the reception counter or you may also use the 24-hour Depository Box located at the North and South entrance to Village Hall.

Shut-off Procedure:

If payment is not received by 5:00 p.m. thirty-four days after the billing date, a shut off notice will be sent notifying you that the water service will be terminated within forty-eight hours. Failure to submit payment within the prescribed timeline will result in termination of water service. In this event, a turn-on fee of $50 - $75 will be applied to have service restored.

Returned Checks:

A $25.00 service charge is applied per check that is returned and not honored by our bank.  Each account is then subject to immediate shut-off procedure.
