NOTICE - Water Customers/Users

May 13, 2024


Notice to all Ilion water customers/users:


Late last week, a notice was sent to some ratepayers, regarding the replacement of your water meter. The letter cited the Local Law, as required, for non-compliance of Meter Section 19F, subsection b (the law was included verbatim).


The village, as required, sent correspondence on 3 separate occasions, via a fluorescent-colored postcard. Each time it was sent, it was a different color so that users were aware it wasn't the same notice. This card was sent informing all water users to call the number for the contractor hired to install the new meters (East Water). If East Water arrived at your residence and found an issue with your current meter or service line, they did not replace your meter or service, you were placed on a spreadsheet for the village to handle when East Water was finished.


This spreadsheet provided the village with the knowledge that there was an issue at your residence for the village to check into and allowed the village to notify the user that they needed to schedule an appointment to allow village crews to come to the residence and check on the problem. Again, the village then called and/or posted door tags for these users as a reminder to set an appointment.


What this eventually led to was the notice received this past week. If the account holder had not scheduled an appointment, as repeatedly requested, they received the letter. The majority of the notices sent were sent for the proper reason. The village realizes that some folks may have received this in error, and for that we apologize. All that was necessary was to read the letter, call the office as advised in the last paragraph, and schedule an appointment to rectify the issue. The village crew will come to your residence and do their best to fix whatever the problem is that was on the spreadsheet. Once this is scheduled and completed, the fine and water shut off is no longer a concern.


For those that own multi-unit rental properties, the notice was sent, or a staff member called, the information on file with the water account. If you feel that the address or phone number is incorrect, please stop in at the office and make the necessary changes.


Again, if you received the notice last week, just call the office and schedule an appointment to have the village water crews stop and check the issue and make the necessary arrangements to get a new meter in for you.


Thank you,

John P. Stephens

Mayor/ Public Safety Commissioner
