Billing procedures.

Thereafter, a penalty of 20% will be added to the bill per quarter. Penalties may be waived, for good cause shown, at the sole discretion of the Village Board. Failure to receive the bill by mail or otherwise shall not excuse payment of the water bill. Effective 1/01/16, any account that has an unpaid water bill that goes to the tax roll will incur a penalty of $100 or 20% of the amount re-levied, whichever is higher.

Delinquent rents or charges. Whenever water rents or charges have remained unpaid for more than 90 days from the date of issue, the Village shall have the right to discontinue the supply of water to the premises and prevent the further use of water therein, until such rents and charges and interest at 20% per quarter are paid, together with the charge of $50 for again turning on water. Where the supply of water is turned off by direction of the Board of Trustees, no person shall turn it on without first obtaining a permit therefore. Shutoffs will be in compliance with all state and federal regulations

Penalty for failure to provide meter readings. Effective January 1, 2019, any working meter, that is determined to be accessible to read, but that has to be estimated because the owner fails to submit a meter reading, will be billed at 10,000 gallons for each quarter, and will incur a $25.00 fee for each quarterly occurrence to owner’s account. Failure to provide two consecutive quarterly readings will result in an additional $100.00 fee to owner’s account, and the installation of a remote read meter. Failure to provide access to the meter reader on a mutually agreeable time within three (3) months following the failure to provide the quarterly meter readings will result in an additional $250.00 fee to that account.
