Billing and Payments
Water and Sewer customers are billed by mail each month. Bills are mailed the first week of the month with payments due by the 25th. The charges will appear on your bill across from the abbreviations W1, W2, W3 for water and S1, S2, S3, S4 for sewer. You will also find the current reading of your meter on your bill (if that number doesn’t match what is on your meter at time of reading then please call the Village Hall). Payments not received by 5:00 p.m. on the 25th are subject to penalties. If your bill shows a “past due” amount then that amount must be paid by the 16th of that same month or a “shut-off” notice will be sent giving you only 10 days to pay it or your water will be shut-off. There is a $100 re-instatement fee if your water is turned back on from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. on business days. If you request your water to be turned back on after business hours, or weekends, given that a Public Works Employee is available, the re-instatement charge is $150.
*Cash, Check or Money Order – Payments can be mailed, dropped off at the Village Hall or deposited in our drop box slot located at the next door south of the Village Hall door on Main Street.
*Automatic Debit from Checking or Savings Account – An Automatic Debit Payment Application Form must be on file at the Village Hall for this option.
