Downtown Public Water Connection Requirements & SSA

In order to recoup roughly 1/3 of the cost for the public water system in the Historic Downtown, the Village Board approved amendments to the Village Code: (1) extending the deadline for buildings to connect to public water system to January 31, 2019 and (2) reducing the distance of buildings from the public water main that have to connect by from 400′ to 80′.  As an option to provide alternative financing for those property owners that are interested, the Village Board also approved an ordinance establishment of a Special Service Area for those buildings that are located within 80′ of the water main.  The minimum quarterly water rate is $100.  Please (click here) to go to the page with informational materials.
