Village Council will discuss potential change to water rate ordinance Aug. 15

Silver Lake Village Council on Aug. 15 will give a second reading to an amendment to the village's water rate ordinance stating that all residents who are connected to the water system and those whose connection to the water system is through fire hydrant service must pay a minimum fixed charge for upkeep of the system. Council gave the measure a first reading on July 18.

Nearly every resident is connected to the village's water and sewer systems and pays a flat rate of $15.94 per month for water system maintenance and are then also charged for the water they use. There are 30 village homes on North Dover Road and Woodland Lane that are not connected to the village's water or sewer system who do not pay this flat rate, according to village officials. With the legislation, officials are proposing charging $15.94 per month to these residents because water from a fire hydrant could be used to put out a blaze at their home. The charge would take effect in the Oct. 1 bills payable Oct. 20, according to the proposed ordinance.

The public is invited to attend and offer their comments, according to village clerk-treasurer Sean Housley.

The meeting starts at 7 p.m. in Village Hall, 2961 Kent Road.
