Water and sewer usage rates have been increased. The rate changes are reflected in the enclosed bill. This increase was necessary so the Village can continue to meet the ever growing operational & capital needs of our systems. Village residents will pay $4.13 for water & $6.95 for sewer. Town residents will pay $7.34 for water & $6.95 for sewer. (Rates are per 1000 gallons of consumption) You can mail your water/sewer payment to Village Hall or stop by the office. A mail drop box is located to the left of the Village Hall front door for the convenience of check payments. Please direct all billing questions & concerns to VRI at 845-­‐677-­‐3839.
