Department of Public Works includes the following expense accounts: A1620, A1640, A3310, A3510, A5010, A5110, A5140, A5142, A5182, A7550, A8090, A8140, A8160, A8170, A8510, A8560

Sewer Fund includes the following expense accounts: G1320, G1650, G8120

The DPW department has 30 full time employees and up to 12 part time employees at various times of the year.  The department’s responsibility includes highway, sanitation, building maintenance, water, parks, and the repair facility (garage).  It also supports several functions that occur in the village such as Summerfest, Earth Day, Run Against Hunger and others.

 

The Water and Sewer Fund are paid for by water and sewer fees, not property taxes.

 

The Water Fund budget is recommending an increase in water rates of $0.20/100 cubic feet of consumption for Tier 2 (basic), in order to help fund the improvements made to the water infrastructure.

 

The Sewer Fund currently has a deficit of $199,201.  The proposed budget recommends a rate increase of 20% to help offset this deficit.  This would increase the rate to $1.5388/100 cubic feet of water consumption from the current $1.2823.
