Utility Billing

Utility Services


The Administrative Services Department processes monthly utility bills. These bills include costs associated with water usage, sanitary sewers, and storm water costs. Water rates are established by filing a rate application with the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin (PSC), which Howard has done since 1955. The sanitary sewer utility and storm water rates / fees are established by the Village Board.

The rates for the water and sewer utility are based on customer usage and expressed on a per-thousand gallons basis.
