Water Rate Adjusted
Posted on Thursday July 11, 2019
Following a careful review of Mokena’s water and sewer operating funds, your Village of Mokena Board of Trustees recently approved an ordinance amending the Village’s water rate for the 2020 fiscal year.

The rate is made up of a City of Chicago rate for treating and delivering water to Oak Lawn, an Oak Lawn rate for delivering water to Mokena and four other “downstream” communities, and a local community rate for delivering water directly to Mokena residents and businesses.

A $0.15/1,000 gallons adjustment in the 2020 fiscal year was agreed to by the Board.  As a result, the Village’s water rate was increased from $7.47/1,000 gallons to $7.62/1,000 gallons effective July 1, 2019 (billable in August, 2019).

The $0.15/1,000 gallons adjustment is expected to increase monthly water bills by approximately $1.20 for the average Mokena household.

The ordinance additionally adjusted water and sewer tap-on fees upwards by 1.5%.

All other water and sewer rates remain unchanged.
