Water and Sewer Bill Payments
Billings are based upon water usage obtained through meter readings for each billing cycle. The readings are measured per thousand gallons. The following Water & Sewer rates became effective with bills issued after 05/1/2016:
Each billing due date is by the 15th of the month (Bi-Monthly billings are due by the 15th of every 'even' month). A 10% late charge penalty is assessed on the unpaid current billing's charges if payment is not received by the due date.
If an account has an outstanding balance of $100 or greater from a previous billing period, a Shut-Off Notice is mailed to the delinquent party who is responsible for the payment of the bill. The Shut-Off Notice will advise that if the bill is not paid by the due date on the notice (usually within 7 days after the Shut-Off Notice is mailed) that the water service will be disconnected. If service is disconnected, it shall not be reinstated until the past due bill is paid in addition to a $100 reconnection fee.
In addition, in the event the charges for services are not paid within 30 days after the rendition of bill and service has been disconnected, these delinquencies shall constitute liens to be placed upon the real estate. The Village Treasurer and/or Village Clerk is authorized and directed to file sworn statements showing such delinquencies with the Office of the Recorder of Deeds of Lake County, and the filing of such statements shall be deemed notice of payment for such charges and for such services. All past due water & sewer balances, penalties, lien fees and the $100 reconnection fee must be paid prior to restoring service to the delinquent property. (Ord. 2009-02-04, 2-25-2009)
