Beginning in December, 2017, the Village will be moving from a quarterly billing system to a monthly billing system. Your November bill will be the last quarterly bill and the December bill will be your first monthly bill.

If you are interested, please call the office for more information.


New Utility Service:

New customers to the Village utility system must sign up for utility service at the Community Center in order for the utilities to be placed in their name. Failure to do so will result in a disconnection of service.

All payments are due by the fifth (5th) day of the following month. After that date, all outstanding billings will have a 10% penalty charge added to their account.


Payment Options:

Utility bills may be mailed in or paid in person at the Community Center during office hours. There is a locked drop box by the side door of the center for payments after hours. People’s Bank will accept payments for the Village and there is the option to make electronic payments.


Water Shut-Off Policy:

If the shut-off is due to non-payment of the utility bill, or for violation of any other water or wastewater rule or regulation, the customer will have a $25.00 re-connection charge.

If the customer requests the utility to be disconnected, they will not receive a minimum bill, but will be billed $25.00 for a turn on fee.

Rental Properties, when empty, will be placed in the Landlord’s name until a new tenant moves in and requests utility service. If a tenant moves with a utility balance owed, the service will be shut-off until payment is made, along with the $25.00 re-connection fee.
