Over the past year, the Village of Oreana has been reviewing water revenue as compared to the cost of purchasing and distributing water. At the June 19th Village Board Meeting, the Village Board approved new water rates that are expected to generate the revenue needed to operate the water distribution system. This rate increase will only affect users with over 2,000 gallons of usage per month. The base rate of $21.86 will remain the same and will include the first 2,000 gallons of water. The price for each additional thousand gallons of water is $10.00. The sewer rates will remain the same this year. All rates (water and sewer) will continue to be automatically increased by 3% each June, which has been the case since 2014.
