No, the village has no authority under Illinois law to establish water and sewer rates.
No, there is no franchise fee or local tax associated with the water and sewer service.
The village has questioned and taken legal action to stop IAW rate increases since its incorporation in 2001. The village has worked with Representative Renee Kosel and Senator Christine Radogno in seeking legislation adopted that holds public water utilities more accountable for their service, practices and billing methods, and has been successful in petitioning the ICC to cap unaccounted for water, require annual fire hydrant inspections, stop illegal back billing practices. The village has also intervened in the 2006 and 2008 rate cases. The village will be joining with the Attorney General and other communities to intervene in the most recent proposal of a 29.72% increase in water and 50.96% in sewer rates.
In addition to being advocates for fair and reasonable rates, the village continues to investigate the possibility of acquiring the utility. Mayor Jim Daley recently reported to the Board of a meeting held with adjacent communities that also receive IAW services through the Bedford Transmission Line. The group met in Homer Glen late last month to review confidential documents presented by their accounting and engineering consultants that have analyzed information provided by IAW for purposes of appraising the system. In addition to the group working together on the joint purchase of the transmission system, the communities are also investigating the acquisition of their individual distribution systems.
