Friends and Neighbors, We’ve Made It!

2020 has been one of the most challenging years that I believe any of us have faced in a long time. I am so proud of the resilience we have all shown during these difficult times. We have shown that when times get tough, we are able to band together with our community and push through. We’ve come out the other side stronger and wiser.

As we enter the new year I want to make you aware of some exciting changes. The Village has purchased some upgrades equipment for our meters and some new meters. Our Maintenance Department will be installing these items within the next few months. Along with the new meters and meter equipment, we will also begin the process of changing our billing software. The current software is outdated and doesn’t fit well with the Village’s needs. We will be integrating to the new software in the next few months. The look of your bills may change. Please be patient as we learn to navigate the new system.

With the new year, the rates for our water and sewer usage have increased slightly. You will see that increase with your February bill. For exact rates, please visit our website at

Please keep in mind that garbage needs to be bagged before being taken out for pick up. Koogler’s will not pick up any garbage that is not bagged. If you have large items that cannot be bagged and cannot fit into your garbage bin, please contact Koogler’s directly to arrange for a pick up of those items.

As always, our Council Meetings are the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of each month. Council meets at Village Hall at 7:00pm. These meetings are open to the public, and we would welcome each and every one of you to attend.
