Water Rates / Billing
Water usage at residences is metered, in part to encourage conservation. Water meters are read every two months by a contractor, usually someone who lives in the Village. The Clerk-Treasurer uses these readings to produce and mail bi-monthly bills.
The billing rate is a made up of two parts:
A $60.00 fixed fee for the first 500cf used. This fee pays for maintaining the water-distribution system, including the equipment needed to ensure that water is available at each residence when needed.
An additional fee of $1.25 for each additional 100cf (or fraction thereof) used during the billing cycle. This fee helps pay for other routine expenses associated with the Water Department.
- All money paid to the Beaux Arts Water Department is kept in a separate fund and used exclusively for water-department expenses.
Payments are due by the 25th of the billing month. You can either mail you payment to the Beaux Arts Water Department or hand-deliver your payment to the locked mailbox on the mailstand nearest the water tower. If you are hand-delivering your payment, please place the payment coupon and your check in an envelope and insert the envelope in the locked mailbox. Feel free to reuse the envelope that your bill came in. Customers who do not pay by the deadline will incur a late fee.
If you have a question about your water bill, please contact Clerk/Treasurer Sue Ann Spens.
