Contact City Office to be Placed on Budget Bill
The new budget payment plan for utility bill will be calculated soon for the upcoming fiscal year that begins in May.
If you are already on budget bill, the city will figure a new amount and send to you with your May utility bill.
If you are NOT currently on the plan and wish to have your utility bill figured on a budget plan, please contact the city office on or before April 17th at 217-438-6151 ext. 2302 and we will be happy to add you to the list of letters sent out in May.
Should anyone choose to go on the budget payment plan, they MUST start paying this amount with the May bill, which is due on or before May 31 of each year.
If you do not pay the budget amount that we figured for you BY May 31 of each year, we will NOT put you on the budget bill plan and you will owe the amount of the bill each month.
PLEASE REMEMBER THE BUDGET AMOUNT FIGURED IS JUST A BEST GUESS BASED ON USAGE FROM THE PREVIOUS BUDGET YEAR. CUSTOMERS MUST MONITOR THEIR PAYMENTS EACH MONTH TO ENSURE A PROPER CREDIT IS BUILDING UP IN TIME FOR THE COLD WINTER MONTHS.
Customers can also simply forego paying the budget amount figured for them and can simply build a credit on their account throughout the year.
