Water meters are read electronically for billing once a year in May. The water is billed on June 1st each year and due in 60 days. Penalties accrue after this time and any unpaid water bills on May 1st will be relevied to Village taxes. Outside users are subject to termination of service for unpaid bills. The Village has the equipment to read meters throughout the year to assist in leak detection. If your meter shows a “potential leak”, we will notify you so that you can research any problems that can be corrected to save money as well as conserve water.
Should the Village impose any water restrictions, they will be posted on the Community Board at the entrance to the Village on Maple Road.
