However, due to fuel surcharges, the costs of providing clean drinking water and maintaining the wells, pumps, tower, and lines, it is necessary to create water use categories and increase rates. The new rates will be reflected on August 2022 billing.

The sewer project bids were opened approximately a month ago and those bids came in over budget, and the monthly costs to the residents were not feasible. So instead of scrapping the entire project, the board voted to do a redesign of the system to try to bring the costs down so that we can have a quality system, that meets USDA & EPA guidelines, and will keep things affordable for the residents.
The progress on the city-wide sewer system in Greenview has been slow, but it is starting to pick up steam. The plans have been completed with the layout and the treatment plant and paperwork is being completed. We are currently waiting on some permitting from the Illinois EPA defining the classification of our sewer system before certain things can be completed and the project can go out to bid. With that being said, the Village Board, adopted ordinance #553 on January 18th, AUTHORIZING THE ISSUANCE OF UP TO $4,892,000 SEWERAGE SYSTEM REVENUE BONDS OF THE VILLAGE OF GREENVIEW, MENARD COUNTY, ILLINOIS, FOR THE PURPOSE OF DEFRAYING THE COST OF ACQUIRING, CONSTRUCTING, IMPROVING AND EXTENDING SEWERAGE FACILITIES, AND RELATED MATTERS. A copy of this ordinance was posted in the Springfield Journal Register on 01/24/2021 and can be viewed at Village Hall or viewed online at www.thevillageofgreenview.com.
