Water Rate Increase

The Village of Barrington’s 2022 Annual Budget was adopted during the December 13th Village Board Meeting. Included in the budget is a provision for a water and sewer utility rate increase. The Village owns and operates a water and sewer utility enterprise that is completely supported through user charges. There is no additional support from outside sources (i.e. property taxes) to help finance the system. As such, the rate must be set at a level that generates enough revenue to offset water and sewer operating costs, debt obligations on major infrastructure projects, and future repairs and improvements. In addition to operating costs, each year the Village compiles a five year Capital Improvement Plan to help prioritize maintenance needs. Based upon that assessment and the current cost of services as projected in the 2022 Budget, it is necessary to increase the utility rates.
