VILLAGE OF BROADVIEW NEW WATER RATES FOR YEAR 2012

PER RAHM EMMANUEL C/O
CHICAGO’S 25% INCREASE

 

The City of Chicago supplies water from Lake Michigan to customers throughout the city and neighboring suburbs. In the case of our Village, the City supplies water to the Broadview Westchester Joint Water Agency (BWJWA), who then in turn supplies water to the Village of Broadview.

Because the purchase cost of water, along with the cost of transmission through our underground water pipeline system are our primary operational cost factors, it is necessary to increase our water customer billing rates to absorb the increased raw material cost imposed by the City of Chicago.

The following rate increases will be reflected in the March 15, 2012 billing cycle: 

Customer Category 2011 Water Rates 2012 Water Rates Sewer Rate (unchanged) 2011 Water & Sewer Rates
2012 Water & Sewer Rates
RESIDENTIAL $4.70 $5.07 $0.81 $5.51 $5.88
COMMERCIAL $4.70 $5.07 $0.81 $5.51 $5.88
GOVERNMENT $5.46 $5.83 $0.81 $6.27 $6.64
INDUSTRIAL $4.40 $4.77 $0.81 $5.21 $5.58
SPRINKLERS $4.40 $4.77 $0.81 $5.21 $5.58

*current rates are subject to change

 

 

The 2012 rate increase to our water customers solely reflect a dollar – for –dollar pass through of the water supply cost increase imposed by the City of Chicago. It should also be noted that the Village of Broadview absorbed the last water supply rate increase from the City of Chicago (in 2010) without increasing rates to our water customers.
