Announcements: BERRIEN COUNTY RESIDENTIAL TIRE RECYCLING EVENT
The Berrien County Residential Tire Recycling Collection will take place Thursday, April 30 from 3pm to 7pm; and Friday, May 1 from 8:30am to 11:00am at the County Road Commission facility, 2860 E. Napier Ave., Benton Harbor. This one event is the only Tire Recycling Collection that the County is coordinating this year. They are able to offer the tire recycling collection free this year, thanks to a MDEQ grant. This grant does not cover recycling costs for oversize tires and other service costs, so donations are accepted. The Tire Recycling Collection is open to County Residents only.
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.
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.
