The Village has changed Utility Billing software and has a new online website to view your account.
Residential customers may pay water bills online with a Visa, MasterCard or Discover credit card, or with debit card linked to a (coming soon) checking or savings account. Customers may choose to make a one-time payment or sign up to have payments made automatically from a designated account each billing period.
Customers who choose to register an account, even if they do not opt for automatic payments, will be able to sign up for paperless billing, store payment account information, pay by text and send an online request directly to the Village.

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.

To Pay By Automatic Debit:
Direct debit is a payment service which makes it more convenient for you to make utility payments to the Village. Your utility payments can now be made automatically from your checking account. The bank account used to pay the utility bill is authorized by you and there are no checks to be lost or delayed in the mail. To sign up for this convenient direct debit service, complete and return the authorization form.
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.
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.
A $25.00 service charge is applied per check that is returned and not honored by our bank.
