Low water bills a one-time savings
CHANNAHON —The village has been receiving calls from residents about why their village utility bills (water and refuse) were down. It’s a one-time savings, Channahon Finance Director Bob Guess said.
The savings of between $15 and $20 was applied to December bills from a tax rebate applied to the refuse portion of the bill. It is a one-time thing, Guess said, from a $62,500 excess payment to the village from last year’s tax levy.
Most residents also saw some extra dollars in their pockets beginning last month due to the lower rates from electricity services through electrical aggregation.
