Sewer Rate Increase for 2020-2021

Village of Tilton

October 23, 2019

Tilton Sewer Customer

To all Sewer Customers of the Village of Tilton:

As of January 1, 2020, the sewer rate for customers will increase as follows:

$20.00 basic user fee up to the first 1,000 gallons and an additional $3.00 per 1,000 gallons used.

As of January 1, 2021, the sewer rate for customers will increase as follows:

$25.00 basic user fee up to the first 1,000 gallons and an additional $4.00 per 1,000 gallons used.

The Village Board considered several factors in establishing these rates. As many of you are aware, our sewer system in approximately 70 years old and continues to deteriorate each year. We want to make sure that our citizens are safe and treated fairly. Our current basic user fee is $12.00, making it one of the lowest rates in the state.

We have had conversations with other entities in the past about selling our sewer system to someone with the funds to make the improvements. This would have probably raised user fees to almost $100.00 per month. Which we would like to avoid. Our goal is to make the sewer rates affordable to our citizens but also make it safe.

The Village of Tilton plans to borrow $18,000,000.00 from the Environmental Protection Agency in the next year or so to be able to make the improvements that our sanitary sewer system so desperately needs.

Thank You,

David A. Phillips, Mayor

Mayor Issues Warning to Citizens about Choosing Contractors

dphillips

A Note From Mayor Phillips,

“As many contractors are coming out of the woodwork to get you to give them your business, I would like to strongly encourage you to do your homework, and check into those companies. Many scammers will say they are from the local area. Just because they say their local business owners doesn’t mean they really are. A good rule of thumb is to run the contractor by your insurance company to ensure they are legit and able to do the work for them. My staff and I want to look out for those in our Village and we are currently constructing a list of those companies that currently hold a solicitation permit for the Village. Also, keep in mind that just because they have a permit to solicit doesn’t make them a reparable company. If you have any question please feel free to call city hall at (217) 477-0800 and we will try to help you out.”

Respectfully
-Mayor David Phillips
