In conjunction with the adoption of the 2019/20 budget, the Village Board approved Water and Sewer rates to be charged by the Village effective May 1, 2019. Billings created after May 1 will reflect the adjustments described in the PDF linked below.
In approving these rates, the stated goal of the Village is to generate adequate revenues to fully fund the operations of the Water and Sewer utility system as well as provide for current and future capital needs. At the same time, the Village remains mindful of this rate structure. It is the Village’s sincere desire to maintain rates at a reasonable level and in line with our neighboring communities.
As a reminder, no property tax dollars are used to fund the utility system; It is an "enterprise" fund, meaning that all revenues to pay for these services are received from user fees.
An updated water and sewer billing rate structure, which provides a calculation of the total billing amount residents can expect based on water consumption, is included within the below attached PDF.
Please feel free to contact the Finance Department at (847) 551-3800 if you have questions regarding how your bill is calculated.
