NOTE FROM THE TREASURER

Village Taxes are printed on the green paper.  They are sent out on July 1st and are due by September 14th.  Our office is located next to the Library which is in our building.

The sewer bills need to be paid by the last day of February every year.  If not, I have to add them as a special assessment onto the summer tax for that property.

If you have any questions about your taxes or your sewer please feel free to call me at our office 231-889-3171.

 

Thank you for your time. - Nikki
