Bill Schedule

10% LATE CHARGE: If Current Charges are not paid (in full) on or before the due date (typically the 25 of the month), a penalty of a 10% late charge will be applied to the unpaid portion on the next business day. Payments will be applied as follows - Fees, Late Charges, Previous Balance, then Current Charges.

SHUT OFF NOTICE & DISCONTINUING SERVICE FEE: Unpaid charges from the prior bill(s) appear as Previous Balance on the current bill. If the Previous Balance remains unpaid by the 10th of the current month, staff sends a shut-off notice and applies a $50 discontinuing service fee the next business day.

SERVICE SCHEDULED FOR DISCONNECT: If payment is not received in full for charges detailed on the shut-off notice by the close of business on the 21st of the month, service is scheduled for disconnection the next business day. Before service can be reinstated, a $50 reinstatement fee (as established in the Comprehensive Fee Schedule) is assessed to the account, and the account's total past due balance (including all fees and late charges) must be paid in full.

Summer Sewer Credit

Lake County and the Village have agreed upon a sanitary sewer credit during a specific summer period. This credit reflects the fact that all water used during the summer does not return through the sanitary sewer system. The agreed-upon period during which the credit is applied includes the bills for July through October. The credit is applied when summer usage exceeds 120% of the average usage during the eight months preceding the start of the summer season. For questions regarding the sewer, credit click HERE or contact the Finance Clerk at 847-913-2302 (Monday - Friday 9:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.).
