The water meters are read quarterly and bills are sent out monthly with the balance due in our office for overage by the quarterly due date listed on your monthly bills.

Quarterly readings are taken the first week of March, June, September and December of each year.  A 10% penalty will be applied on any unpaid balance after the due date listed on the water bills.  You may make payments to the above address or by dropping payment in the payment box located outside of the Village Hall.

A security deposit of $150 is due upon receipt of this letter along with a $50 non returnable water turn on fee.  After 24 months from the date of deposit the user has not been delinquent in the payment of water charges, the deposit shall be returned to the user without interest.
