The Utility Bill is a combined bill including water, sewer, garbage and recycling. The bills are mailed monthly. Utility bills for the Village of Round Lake are mailed to customers the 1st of each month. Payment is due by the 20th.  For payments received after the 20th, a late fee of 10% is assessed.  If payment is not made by the 20th, a pink delinquent notice, which is also known as the 2nd notice, will be mailed.  If payment is not made by the due date on the pink notice, a yellow shut-off notice, also known as a 3rd notice, showing the full amount owed and the reconnection charges will be mailed.  If payment is not made by the due date of the yellow notice, the water will be disconnected and to reconnect the water service, payment must be made in full or payment arrangements must be made.  The reconnection fee of $50 dollars will be placed on your next bill.
