Charges for sewer usage are based on water consumption. Sewer charges for residential bills issued in July through October are based on average winter consumption plus 25%.

Water bills are issued on a bi-monthly basis from actual meter readings. If the Village is unable to obtain an actual reading, an estimated bill will be issued that is based on the historical average usage for each location. Water and Sewer bills are sent out by the first of each month and are due on the 21st of the month. The Village offers several payment options for water and sewer bills.

*Water and Sewer Discount

Applications for either discount are available online and at Village Hall, 118 W. Cook Ave. A government-issued ID with birthdate is required for those applying for the age-based discount. The discount applies after the Village approves application. Discounts will not be retroactively applied.
