In response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Village of Romeoville will be providing each household in the village with a $50 rebate. This will appear as a credit on the June water bill. A total of $600,000 will be given back to the community during this challenging time. Romeoville offered its first rebate program in 2011 in order to assist residents recovering from the Great Recession. This will be the largest assistance program in Romeoville’s history.
“Through our website and social media, we have been doing our best to keep residents informed of the latest virus news and various resources available to them,” said Mayor John Noak. “We wanted to go a step further and offer some financial relief as well.”
The rebate applies to single family housing units located within the village’s corporate limits and excludes any second meters such as irrigation meters and sewer only accounts. It does not apply to commercial or industrial accounts. The credit will not be paid out in cash, but will remain on the account to apply against future water charges as applicable.
