Water and Sewer

Water/sewer statements are sent quarterly in March, June, September, and December. Balance is due within 30 days without penalty. After 30 days, a 10% penalty is assessed.  If a shut-off notice is delivered to your door, there is an automatic $50.00 charge to your water/sewer account.  If your water is shut-off, there is a $25.00 charge and to turn the water back on another $25.00 charge

Periodically, fire hydrants are opened to flush sediment out of the water lines. This is a necessary maintenance procedure. Closing your water valve at the meter can help prevent excess air from getting into your pipes and fixtures. When this procedure is scheduled, an announcement will be posted on this website and Facebook, and will also appear in the Village Newsletter that comes with your water bill. For more information, contact the Village Clerk or send an email to the DPW.
