Water and Sewer Rate Information
The rate for water is a $12.00 minimum charge plus an additional $2.66 per 1,000 gallons. Funds pay for both the cost of water itself and the maintenance of the mains and other distribution components.
The Village sewer charge is a $26.00 minimum charge plus additional $4.24 per 1,000 gallons.
Homes located east of Deep Lake Road pay a sewer charge of $2.90 per 1,000 gallons of water used that is paid to Lake County Public Works (LCPW). This charge is included in the sewer charge of $4.24 per 1,000 gallons shown on your bill. Although this charge is billed by the Village, it is in turn paid to LCPW.
Please contact the utility clerk for information regarding multiple unit bill calculations (i.e. apartment buildings).
