Water and Sewer Rate Study 2017
The 2017 rate study completed by the Village decreased the 2018 water rate per 1,000 gallons of use. The 2017 rate study led to a slight increase in the sewer rate per 1,000 gallons of use and an increase in the monthly user fee. The current Village ordinance calls for a 5% increase in the water, sewer and user rates on the following dates: May 1, 2019, May 1, 2020, May 2, 2021, and May 1, 2022. Water and sewer rates help pay for the cost of providing service, capital debt payments and aggressive capital investment into infrastructure improvements to the Village utility system.
