Monthly Bill & Information: In 2003, our village completed the public sanitary sewers. All property owners with a 'stub' to their property are assessed a monthly fee. At this time, they are as follows: $39.00 for Debt Reduction (this is collected and sent to pay off the debt the village incurred to build the sewers). $20.00 for operation and maintenance (there is routine maintenance that must be performed, as well as operating costs). If the home is connected to the sewer, there are also sewer treatment charges, which are collected and passed on to the City of McHenry per our intergovernmental agreement. Those charges are dependent on the number of people in the home. Billing is done on the 5th of each month, and is due the 25th of the same month at 4:00 pm.
Sewer: Late Fees: In order to avoid late fees, payments must be received in our office by 4:00 pm on the 25th. Any payment received after that time is considered a late payment. If the 25th due date falls on a holiday or weekend, then the sewer bills are due at 4:00 pm on the first business day after the holiday or weekend. There is a drop box outside the front door. You can drop payments any time of day or night. A $5.00 late charge will be added to all payments received after 4:00 pm on the 25th or payment due date. This $5.00 late fee will also be added to all accounts past due on the 25th of the month after 4:00 pm.
