General Information:
The professional term for sewer is wastewater.  The Village’s lagoon system was constructed in the early 1960’s and modified in 1980 to include irrigation facilities and additional storage.  Most of the collection system was replaced in 1998 to remove excessive infiltration and inflow.Villages that discharge treated wastewaters to lakes and streams or to groundwater do so under a federal permitted system known as the National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES).  The permit spells out in exact detail the volume of wastewater the community can discharge and the concentrations of pollutants the wastewater discharge may contain.  Weather permitting, the months of discharge are March thru November.  This is an enterprise fund.  Sewer bills are mailed out on a quarterly basis following the monthly sequence of March 1, June 1, September 1, and December 1 of each year.  Charges are billed in advance and payments are due to the Village of Kent City on the last day of the month preceding the quarterly billing period.  Payments can either be mailed by USPS to the Village of Kent City, PO Box 296, Kent City, MI  49330 – or made in person at the Village Office during office hours.  After hours payment may be placed in the payment drop box to the right of the front door of the Village Office.  Exact change is requested when paying in cash.A 10% late fee is added to each quarterly charge if not paid by the due date.  Payment must be received on or before the due date to avoid late charges.  Postmarks are NOT accepted.  Rates can be furnished upon request.

Winter Reminders:

Private snow contractors must clear all snow from the public streets and sidewalks. Residents are prohibited from blowing or shoveling snow into the streets or leave on the sidewalks. As a courtesy the village removes snow from the sidewalks and does the main school route first. However, it is the property owner’s responsibility to keep the sidewalk clear of snow & ice. Please be considerate of the DPW employees when they are removing snow. Mail Boxes Please check your mailbox post to be sure it is stable before the winter season is upon us and that the box is securely on the post. Mailboxes and / or supports that are damaged as a result from snowplowing are not subject to replacement by the Village.
