Village Utilities

We now accept Credit Card payments! You can pay with credit card Online or at the village office.  Other acceptable forms of payment:  cash, check or money orders.  We currently do not offer Autopay.  Check with your bank as most banks offer FREE billpay for those who would like to schedule a recurring bill payment from their checking account.  Your bank should be able to help you with this option.

Payments are due by the 10th of the month and considered delinquent on the 20th of each month.  Bills that are 60 days past due will receive notice in the mail for the past due balance and a $5.00 late fee will be assessed.  In the event that the bill is not paid within 7 days after sending notice, it shall be discretionary with the Utilities Superintendent to cut off service at any time.  If service is shut off, a $50 reconnect fee will be applied to the account.  Services will not be turned back on until balance is paid in full.
