Notice: Change of Village Hall Office Hours

Effective March 13, 2024 – The Village Hall Clerk’s office will be CLOSED to the public on Wednesday’s until further notice.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.  Just a reminder that payments can be left in the gray drop box next to the Village Hall front door and online at  (use PLC #7752 for utility bills; #7754 for fines & forfeitures; and #7754 for miscellaneous payments).  The office will be open to the public on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 8:00am-4:00pm.  Thank you!!

CHANGE: Water/Sewer Billing

The Village has been approved to move from quarterly billing to monthly billing.  The effective start date will be October 1, 2023.  This means your 3rd quarter bill (July, August, September usage) will be mailed out on October 1, 2023 and due on the 20th.  This also means that the second “late” notice that has been sent out in the past will be eliminated in order to help the effectiveness of our billing period. Therefore, you will receive the original bill at the first of each month and if the bill has not been paid by the 20th, you will automatically receive a disconnection notice…so PLEASE be aware that you will no longer receive a late notice as a reminder you have a bill still due. 

The monthly bills will then begin on November 1st and each month thereafter and will be due on the 20th of each month.  If you receive a disconnection notice and you have not made arrangements for payment, your service will be disconnected.  In order to restore service, you will need to make full payment, plus the re-connection fee.  Schedule No. Mg-1, Amendment No. 35 is available for viewing at the Village Hall.

Please be patient as we navigate these changes. 

Thank you for your cooperation!!
