Utility Billing

Village of Sugar Grove Utility bills include charges for water, sanitary sewer and refuse. Utility bills are always due on the 17th of each month. Should the due date fall on a weekend or a holiday the payment shall be due on the following business day. Bills are considered delinquent if not paid on or before the 17th.

It is the Village’s policy to ensure that all customers of the Village are treated equally and to ensure the integrity of the Water, Sewer, and Refuse systems funds. The Village has provided guidelines meant to ensure, that due to the inability of some customers to make payment that the systems remain solvent and the inability of some does not cause any undue burden to others.

The Village recognizes that from time to time customers need an extension due to unforeseen circumstance in order to pay their utility service bill. The Village does offer payment plans to those who contact us by the 17th of the month. Payment plans are meant to be used from time to time and not habitually.
