Utility Bills Switching to Monthly

Notice to Residents of the City of Savanna-Utility Billing Change

The City of Savanna will begin MONTHLY billing of water, sewer and refuse charges on JUNE 1.

This is a change from our practice of quarterly billing for those services.  To accomplish the change-over, in the month of May,  addresses will be billed either for three months (for those whose last bill was three months before) or for two months (for those whose last bill was two months before) or for one month (for those whose last bill was one month before). This will place everyone on the same monthly schedule.

Please plan accordingly. Monthly billing will start for everyone with bills issued JUNE 1.

City Wide Water Service Line Survey

Public Notice Savanna, IL Lead Service Line Inventory and Replacement.  Final Extension AND New Monthly $50 Fine.

City of Savanna Residents, we need your help!!  The EPA has mandated that cities locate and remove ALL lead water service lines.  This is the waterline that comes into your home underground from the outside. The city is required to create an inventory of all service lines in our system by October 16, 2024 and submit a replacement plan for lead lines.  We are currently only 43% complete, with 704 out of 1625 surveys completed.  At this time, 9% of our service lines have been confirmed as lead.  The cost estimate of each replacement is between $1,200 and $12,000. Financial assistance is currently available to help citizens replace lead service lines at NO COST, but this money is running out quickly.

The city has tried hard to complete this work, including an online map that tracks city progress. Multiple rounds of mailing notifications have been sent, followed with staff going door to door to assist residents with surveys.  Unfortunately, these efforts have not been as effective as hoped, and so we are shifting to a NEW PLAN.

Any resident who has not completed a lead service line survey, and needs help, can now sign up for assistance by signing up online SUBMIT A REQUEST / LEAD SURVEY ASSISTANCE at Savanna, IL City Website OR by calling into Savanna City Hall at 815-273-2251 ext. 306.  Once your request for assistance is on file, a qualified plumbing specialist will schedule a date and time with you to come into your home to complete the survey for your property.  There is no cost to residents for this service. Please sign up for assistance now. If you are unsure about your property status, please call and the city can check for you.

PLEASE NOTE: As part of this plan any property that has not completed the Lead Service Line Survey OR submitted for assistance by May 1st may be assessed a monthly $50 fee until such time they are signed up for assistance or have completed the survey themself. A LINK TO THE ONLINE SURVEY is provided for anyone that wishes to review or complete the survey themselves. *When filling out the online survey, be sure to include your address AND Savanna, IL 61074 to make sure your property is recorded correctly.  PAPER COPIES of the survey remain available and can be printed online or picked up and returned completed at city hall.

Questions or concerns are welcomed.  The citizens awaiting financial assistance for lead line removal and replacement thank you for your effort. ADDITIONAL RESOURCES AVAILABLE: SAVANNA LEAD SERVICE INFORMATION
