NOTICE 

Utility Rates Increase

The Village of South Range will see an over twenty percent increase in the purchase price of the water the village provides to its residents in our February 2019 billing.  This has forced us to increase our utility bill rates as this and other costs throughout the industry have continued to rise.  This increase will take effect for usage beginning February 1, 2019, which will be billed March 1, 2019.  These rate adjustments will help ensure the reliability and affordability of basic water, sewer and waste services and help in the general maintenance of its infrastructure.  The increase will be $5.00 on your regular monthly bill. 

The rate increases are as follows: 

·         $2 for the W charge on the bill, which is Water Operations and Maintenance. 

·         $2 for the SDSO charge on the bill, $1 for SD-Sewer Debt and $1 for SO-Sewer Operations and Maintenance. 

·         $1 for the G charge on the bill, which is Garbage.

If you have further questions about the rate changes, please contact the Village Clerks office at 906-482-8833.  If no one answers your call please leave a message and somebody will get back to you as soon as possible. 

 Thank you
