Water Rate Increase

The City of Chicago has notified the Village of Oak Lawn of an increase in the water rate.  The City charges 3.37% ( or approximately $0.15 per thousand gallons), effective June 1, 2024. In addition, the Regional Water System ("RWS") advisor has noted that the leakage of the system is trending higher than the prior year, resulting in a projected budget shortfall, and necessitating a rate increase of $0.05 per thousand gallons, beginning June 1, 2024.
