Water, Sewer, and Fixed Facility Fees

The Village Board sought to develop a formal funding strategy for the water and sewer utility fund that will allow needed capital improvement to occur over the next 20 years. The goal of the strategy was to develop a funding strategy with no impact to the tax levy and maintain a competitive water/sewer rate amongst other providers within the region. 

In November, 2019, the Village Board approved an increase to the water and sewer rate and created a new fixed facility fee for all users. The changes will be effective January 1, 2020.   

Funds from the rate increase and fixed facility fee will allow the Village to improve the water and sewer system serving your home or business.
