The Village of Holly reads meters for billing on a monthly basis. Meters are read during the last week of each month with bills being mailed out within the first week of each month. Water bill due dates vary based upon the day of the week but, as a rule, water bills are due by the 25th of each month without penalty. After that date, there is a 10% penalty charge added to each bill.

Outside (Sprinkler) Meters
The Village of Holly does allow for the installation of an outside secondary water meter for non-potable water. This outside meter is generally for lawn sprinkling or watering purposes. This secondary meter is not charged the monthly capital charge and is exempt from sewer consumption charges due to the water not going through the Village sewer system. The rate on a secondary meter is $6.80 per 1,000 gallons. The Village does not install these meters, residents and/or businesses must utilize a licensed plumber for their installation. A permit and inspection is required. Contact the Village offices at 248-634-9571 for more information.
