Responsibilities: Under the direction of the Village Administrator, the Utility Clerk is responsible for preparing utility bills, collecting utility rents and depositing them in the proper account and maintaining customer’s accounts.  In addition, the Utility Clerk will perform varied secretarial and administrative duties for the mayor, Village Administrator, Fiscal Officer and departments of the Village.

 


The Utility Department administers the office portion of both the Electric and Water Departments and offers electric, water, sewer, and storm sewer services. Garbage and Recycling services are offered through Republic Services. This department was recognized in 2005 for their excellent Drinking Water Source Protection Plan by the Ohio EPA, and the department has received additional awards from AMP-OHIO such as an Innovation Award, a Transmission/Distribution Safety Award, an Environmental Stewardship Award, and an Improvement Award.  For the Application for Edgerton Utility Service, click here.  Here are some friendly reminders from the Utilities Clerk:

  • Utility bills are due on the 10th of each month, and payments may be made in the utility office or deposited in the drop box (checked daily).  Non-receipt of a bill does not exempt the customer from payment.  If the customer will have difficulties paying on time, please call the Utility Clerk to make agreeable arrangements.

  o   If the payment received is late, a 20% penalty will be applied to current charges at noon the next business day following the 10th.

  o   Delinquent accounts will receive a shut-off notice on the 15th of each month, a $15.00 charge.

  o   If still not paid, delinquent accounts will be disconnected on the 20th of the month, a $15.00 charge.

  o   In order to reconnect service, there will be a $15.00 charge.
