Water & Sewer Service

Starting Water & Sewer Service

Application for an account for water and/or sewer shall only be made by the owner of the home. Water service must be established within 30 days of taking ownership.  Homeowner water applicants must pay a nonrefundable application fee of $30. The Water/Sewer application must be completed and signed in person at the Village Hall office hours of 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Please note: Only when the premises are the subject matter of a foreclosure proceeding, the application may be made by a representative of the foreclosing party if the representative accepts personal liability for all water/sewer charges and provides documentation of his authority to act. A deposit will be required at time of application process.  Read more.
