The Village must impose these additional fees to defray costs for late notices, shut-offs, and service resumptions so that delinquent customers, and not all rate-payers, pay these costs.Please keep your account up to date to avoid these penalties.


• PENALTY. 15 Days after a bill is issued and unpaid, a 10% penalty is assessed on the current charges amount only.
• SHUT-OFF NOTICE. A shut-off notice will be issued for any balance unpaid after 3 quarters of nonpay.
• ACTUAL SHUT-OFF OF SERVICE. Service personnel will be sent to shut-off water to an account
address with a past due balance unpaid after 3 quarters and ample notice of shut off. A $90.50 shut-off fee will be added to your bill when personnel are sent to your address. This fee, along with any previous balance and penalties or fees, must be paid prior to resumption of service.

Both the shut-off notice fee and the shut-off of service fee will increase each time you receive a written notice or when service personnel are sent to your address during the same fiscal year.
