                RE: Ready-to-Serve and On/Off Fees


Dear Village Water/Sewer Customer:


In response to a recommendation from the Michigan Rural Water Association and in preparation for potential water line replacement mandated by the State of Michigan, the village council approved Resolution #22 of 2018, which takes effect March 1, 2019. This resolution specifically provides:


With the exception of Sewer Only and Irrigation accounts, Water Ready to Serve Fees shall be charged to, assessed against all accounts, whether turned on, or shut off. [Amended 11-07-2018]


With the exception of Water Only and Irrigation accounts, Sewer Ready to Serve Fees shall be charged to, assessed against all accounts, whether turned on, or shut off. [Amended 11-07-2018]


This change recognizes that the water and sewer services are ready and available even if a customer requests that the service be turned off. What this change means is that water/sewer bills will not be suspended if a customer decides to turn the water service off. The current Water Ready-to-Serve fee for a 3/4 “ line is $11.91. The Sewer Ready-to-Serve fee for a 3/4” line is $25.49. The 3/4” Water Line Replacement fee is $1.19. The minimum monthly charge of $38.59 will be billed to accounts that are turned off.   


Additionally, the $30.00 On/Off fee will be charged each time service is turned on and turned off.


The village council appreciates your understanding and looks forward to your cooperation in our efforts to provide optimal water and sewer services to our customers.


If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the village office at 231.533.8213.
