WASTE WATER BOND PROJECT

The Town of Monon recently refinanced one municipal utility bond.

 

WATER / SEWER RATE INCREASE (SEPTEMBER 1, 2016 BILL)

The water & sewer rate increases that were passed by the Monon Town Council will be reflected on the September 1, 2016

WATER / SEWER RATE INCREASE CALCULATION

In order to help explain how the proposed water & sewer increase will affect utility bills, we have calculated some examples.  We hope this clears up any confusion; the overall increase is NOT 35%.

3000 gallon consumption: 

Current bill: $60.29 (water & sewer) + $8.00(trash) = $68.29

Water $16.92 (increase 20%) - amount of change $3.38 - new bill amount $20.30

Tax     $ 1.18                               amount of change $0.24 - new bill amount $ 1.42

Sewer $$42.19 (increase 15%)- amount of change $6.33 - new bill amount $48.52

NEW BILL: $70.24 (water & sewer) + $8.00 (trash) = $78.24 (overall increase of 16.5%!)

5900 gallon consumption: 

Current bill: $100.10 (water & sewer) + $8.00(trash) = $108.10

Water $33.28 (increase 20%) - amount of change $6.66 - new bill amount $39.94

Tax     $ 2.33                               amount of change $0.47 - new bill amount $  2.80

Sewer $64.49 (increase 15%) - amount of change $9.67 - new bill amount $74.16

NEW BILL: $116.90 (water & sewer) + $8.00 (trash) = $124.90 (overall increase of 16.8%!)

The Town of Monon strives to provide excellent service to our water/sewer customers.  In order to do this we must maintain the infrastructure, equipment, water towers, etc.  This costs money!  The last rate increase was in 2014 and since that time the Town has experienced several water main breaks, has contracted for water tower maintenance, has purchased new meter reading equipment and has updated the water and waste water plants.  The percentage of the proposed rate increase approved by Town Council is 20% water and 15% sewer.  Effective date to be determined.

We sincerely appreciate prompt payment of your water bills!

WATER BILLS:

September 1st water bills are due September 15th.  Prompt payment of your water bills is greatly appreciated! The printing and mailing of late notices contributes to the overall operational costs of the Utilities Department. Paying on time saves the Town money and helps you avoid penalty charges!

 

DO YOU NEED A DOCUMENT NOTARIZED?

Our Monon Clerk-Treasurer is a Notary Public and will notarize documents free of charge at the Town Hall.  Call 219 253-6441.

 

WHAT IS A "RE-CONNECT FEE"?

Water / sewer / sanitation bills are mailed on the first of the month and are due on the fifteenth.  After the due date, penalty charges are added to the amount of the bill.  Approximately one week prior to the end of the month late notices are mailed to those having a delinquent balance.  If the bill is not paid by the first of the following month the residence is subject to water shut-off.

Accounts are reviewed and on the first of the month a "disconnect" list is created.  The crew is sent to homes to disconnect water at the meter.  When the bill is paid the water is re-connected.  A re-connect charge of $25.00 is added to each account on the disconnect list to help cover the cost of man-hours put into the lengthy delinquent account process.

You can avoid penalty and re-connect charges by paying your utility bills on time!  Prompt payment is greatly appreciated!!!

 

2017 FOOD FEST

On June 3, 2017 our town will be celebrating the 30th Annual Monon Food Fest!  With your help this could be the best one ever! The planning Committee has received many wonderful suggestions and we would love to hear yours.

Volunteers are always needed, welcomed and appreciated!  Please contact Candy Melton or call Debbie at the Town Hall  253-6441.

 

 

FROM OUR SUPERINTENDENT:

Hydrants will be flushed during the week of August 29 through September 2.  Flushing may cause water discoloration and/or particles trapped in the screens of faucets and showers.

Door-to-door sump pump inspections have begun.  These inspections will identify pumps that may be draining into the wastewater system.  Letters of explanation have been mailed to all residences.

Work on the two water towers is complete.  The Town has contracted for continued regular maintenance of the towers.

The Monon crew continues to fill pot holes and pick up brush around town.
