The new water rates for village customers would be $51.50 per quarter for up to 9,000 gallons and $4.25 for each additional 1,000 gallons. The rates for customers living outside the village would be $102.75 per quarter for up to 9,000 gallons and $8 for each additional 1,000 gallons.
Voters approved dissolution of the village earlier this year, and it is slated to go out of existence on Dec. 31, 2014. A plan for how it would be handled must be passed by the Village Board, and the plan can be petitioned to a vote.
If that happens and voters reject the plan, the village would remain intact.
If the village dissolves, its functions and properties will be turned over to the two towns in which it is located, Chesterfield in Essex County and AuSable in Clinton County.
