Welcome to Watervliet, Michigan!
Watervliet Independence Day Celebration Friday, July 3rd through Sunday, July 5th.
FIREWORKS ARE FRIDAY NIGHT AT HAYS PARK (July 3rd at dusk)
SAFETY NOTICE!!! The skate park located at Hays Park is CLOSED due to unsafe ramp conditions. Unlawful entry into the skate park is TRESPASSING and is punishable by law. For your safety please DO NOT trespass. We ask for your cooperation in this matter while the city works towards a safe resolution to the matter.
WATER BILL PAYMENTS ARE DUE BY 5:00PM ON APRIL 27, 2015 TO AVOID A PENALTY. You may have noticed a slight increase in your most recent water/sewer bill. The slight increase is due to the number of days in this billing period. Meters were read for the PREVIOUS billing period earlier than usual which caused the current billing cycle to include more days.
WATER METERS WILL BE READ THE WEEK OF JUNE 22nd. Look for your quarterly bill to arrive during the first week of July
PUBLIC NOTICE!!!!!!!!! BEGINNING JULY 8TH, 2014 COMMISSION MEETINGS WILL BE HELD THE SECOND TUESDAY OF EACH MONTH AT 6:30 P.M. (We will have workshops as needed)
***IMPORTANT WATER BILLING INFORMATION***
If your bill is not paid by 5:00pm Mon. - Fri. (close of business) PRIOR to the SHUTOFF date, your account will be assessed the $25.00 turn on fee. To be clear, the turn on fee will be applied to your account even if PWD has not reached your property yet to turn the water off. This is to ensure fairness to everyone whose payment is not received by the deadline and to prevent only charging the fee to the homes that happen to be first on the list when the shutoffs begin. If your water service is shut off, it will only be turned back on once the bill has been paid IN FULL. Payment in full needs to be paid by 3:00 pm to ensure your water service is turned back on the same day. Once the bill has been paid, the water service will be restored by the end of the business day. Requests for water turn on after 5:00 pm will be subject to personnel availability as well as an ADDITIONAL $40.00 (after hour) turn on fee.
Any payments dropped in the night drop box after 8:30 am will be credited to your account the next business day.
WE HAVE BEGUN INTRODUCING CHLORINE INTO OUR WATER SYSTEM. YOU MAY NOTICE A SLIGHT ODOR OF CHLORINE AND/OR SULFUR FOR A PERIOD OF TIME. THIS IS NORMAL AND TO BE EXPECTED. Please know that the chlorine levels are being monitored and tested daily to ensure safe levels are maintained.
Due to changes in the law in the State of Michigan, the City is no longer able to accept yard waste such as brush, limbs and leaves at our Public Works Garage. Changes in the law prohibit us from burning the brush and limbs brought to that site from elsewhere. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience and ask that you do not dump anything at the garage. Thank you.
