Village and Illinois American Water to Hold Public Information Meeting
January 18th, 2018 @ 2:20pm
On Saturday, March 3, 2018, the Village of Fisher and Illinois American Water will be hosting a public information meeting to discuss the upcoming ownership transition of the Village's water and wastewater systems to American. In the summer of 2017, the Village Board approved an agreement to sell those utilities to American Water due to the rising costs of ongoing maintenance and needs for significant and costly infrastructure improvements in the coming years. The sale is expected to be finalized by the end of March 2018, at which time American Water will assume all responsibilities for system operations, maintenance, and customer billing and collections.
The public is encouraged to attend this informational meeting to learn more details about new rates, billing procedures, and services offered by Illinois American. Representatives from the company will be on hand to answer any questions. The meeting will be held at the Fisher Community Center, 100 E. School Street at 9:00am.
