Water / Sewer Rate Increase

At a council meeting in August 2017, the Village Council approved an increase in water rates that became effective September 1, 2017 with additional increases effective April 1, 2018 and April 1, 2019. These Increases will allow the Village to fund necessary replacement projects. The approved increases for 2018 and 2019 are as follows:

Water Usage$3.50$5.25$3.75$5.40
Sewer Base$22.00$27.00$22.66$27.81
Sewer Usage$3.40$4.15$3.75$5.00
Sewer Only (1 REU)$36.25$45.75$41.41$52.81


We understand that raising rates is not a popular decision, but it is necessary to maintain the health of the two systems and to fund replacements to the 100+ year old water main and a number of sewer system repairs. Water and sewer rate users are the only source of revenue for the two funds and the amount of investment needed at this time, necessitate the rate increase.
