Village Board Unanimously Approves Resolution Objecting to Aqua Illinois Rate Increase

At the Special Village Board of Trustees meeting held on Tuesday, June 13th, the Village Board unanimously approved a resolution formally objecting to the rate increase request being sought by Aqua Illinois from the Illinois Commerce Commission. There will be opportunities for the public to voice any objections at future public hearings that will be held by the Illinois Commerce Commission. The Village will keep residents informed as to when those public hearings will be held. 

For residents who are customers with Aqua Illinois, the average monthly residential wastewater bill (4,500 gallons) would increase by $2.72 ($0.09 per day) to $68.68, and the average monthly residential water bill (4,500 gallons) would increase by $14.05 ($0.47 per day) to $95.34. If approved by the Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC), the changes for all classes of water and wastewater services statewide would result in an increase to base rates of $11,999,981.00.

Aqua Illinois customers can take action by requesting that the ICC hold a public hearing related to Aqua Illinois' rate request.
