Utility Bill Rate Increases
On March 11, 2013 the Village Council passed Ordinance 2013-13 increasing the Village water rates by the same amount as is being passed on to Palos Park by the Village of Oak Lawn and ultimately by the City of Chicago. The City of Chicago water rate increase included a fifteen percent increase on January 1st for 2013, 2014, and 2015. Therefore, the water rate per 1,000 gallons of water as of January 1, 2014 will be $11.37. The minimum bill for water per two month billing cycle is 6,000 gallons or $68.22 per billing cycle.

Please refer to the article on page 17 outlining the new benefits of the Refuse Contract with Republic Waste services. The refuse rate beginning April 1, 2014 will be $19.51 per month or $39.02 per two month billing cycle.

The increase to the Water Rate and the Refuse Rate will be reflected in your Utility Bills over several billing cycles. The first two digits of your Account number is your billing cycle. The 00 Billing Cycle with bills being issued on February 28th will include water usage from December and January. Therefore, the water usage will be billed at 50% of the water rate increase. The 00 Billing Cycle with bills issued on April 28th will include 100% of the water rate increase. The 00 Billing Cycle with bills issued on April 28th for accounts that are not on Lake Michigan water will include 50% of the refuse rate increase. The 00 Billing Cycle with bills issued on June 27th will include both the water rate increase and 100% of the refuse rate increase. The 01 Billing Cycle with bills being issued on March 28th will include 100% of the water rate increase. The 01 Billing Cycle with bills being issued on May 28th will include 50% of the refuse rate increase and the 01 Billing Cycle with bills being issued on July 28th will include 100% of the water rate increase and 100% of the refuse rate increase.
