Mayor's Message

mayor nugent sqWelcome to the official Village of Manteno web site. The Village elected officials and Staff work hard to try and make information about the Village of Manteno readily available and easy for our citizens and visitors to access. Manteno is a great Community with a lot to offer and the web site is a great place to explore what is going on in the Community and to communicate with Village Officials.

Summer/Winter  Rates:  6-4-3(B)(2)
"The village recognizes that summer water use often includes activities that do not impact the sewer system, such as landscape watering. For single-family residential sewer users that fall into this category, the village will determine each user's individual six (6) month "low flow" water usage information from the period November through April to determine possible "summer rates" to be applied during the months May through October. Sewer users will be billed based on actual water usage during "low flow" months. The lesser of the actual water usage or the average usage of the "low flow" period will be utilized for each "summer rate" month billing. The specific dates will vary depending upon actual read dates, but will generally fall within the months mentioned above. For new residents or those with no winter usage history available to establish a low flow amount, a minimum of seven thousand (7,000) gallons per month will be used until at least two (2) months of usage history is available. Nonresidential accounts may be considered for "summer rates" if landscape irrigation for the property is connected through the site's only water meter. (Ord. 12-17, 10-15-2012)"
