Mt. Zion, IL – The Village of Mt. Zion would like to inform and remind its residents that water rates will be increasing by 25% on bills mailed at the end of the month and due July 15, 2015. Village Administrator, Julie Miller, stated that due to increases from the City of Decatur of 35%, 30% & 25% over the past three years, the Village of Mt. Zion in turn had to pass those increases on to its residential and commercial customers.
In April 2013, the Village of Mt. Zion Board of Trustees approved the three year increases. The ordinance also includes a 2.5% annual increase that will begin June 1, 2017. The ordinance was modeled after the City of Decatur’s ordinance and will hopefully allow families to budget and plan for the smaller increases.
After the announcement from the City of Decatur regarding the large increases, the Village Board commissioned a study to look at other water sources and related costs. The study concluded that even after the increases, purchasing water from the City of Decatur was the most cost effective way for Mt. Zion to supply water to its customers.
