Village of North Aurora Presidents Report
● By Katelyn Nelson
Spring is here! As we look forward to warmer weather, I would like to remind our residents to be aware of the Village’s current watering restrictions: all properties with an even-numbered address may water on even-numbered calendar days only and all properties with an odd-numbered address may water on odd-numbered calendar days only. Watering is allowed only between the hours of 6am and 9am and between the hours of 6pm and 9pm. For more information on this ordinance, please contact the North Aurora Water Department at 630-897-8228, ext. 229.
The Village of North Aurora is excited to announce that residents/customers can now pay their water bill online, without transaction fees, using the following link: northaurora.merchanttransact.com/. The types of payment accepted include Visa, MasterCard, Discover and eCheck. Residents and customers can also use this link to sign up to opt out of paper water bills, receive water bills by email and also view water usage history. Please contact the Utility Billing Department at 630-897-8228, ext. 223 for further information. In addition, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover cards are now being accepted at the village hall for payment of water bills, as well as other transactions such as building permits, business/contractor registration, waste stickers, or ordinance violations. Along with the upgraded payment options, residents may have noticed a new format to the village’s utility bill. The new format was designed to provide residents with additional information on their water bills, including a graph that illustrates both past and current water usage.
This year’s Spring Clean-up will be on Fri., May 8. Get your garage, attic and basement cleaned out and take advantage of this free pick-up! Items must be out by 6am as route times change for this special pick-up. Stickers are required for all regular household trash and yard. For any electronic recycling you may have, New Life Electronics Recycling Inc. provides free electronic recycling events with a drop-off location in the parking lot of Woodman’s at 151 Hansen Blvd. on the fourth Saturday of each month. In addition to all electronics, they accept batteries, cameras, cell phones, chargers, and just about anything that “plugs in” or requires batteries. Please be advised that any CRT tube televisions that have a cut cord or is missing components may not be accepted. The next recycling events will be May 23 & June 27 from 1–3pm.
Congratulations to our recently elected trustees, Mark Carroll, Laura Curtis, and Mark Guethle. As all three incumbents were elected to another term as Village Trustee, I am confident that the North Aurora Village Board will continue to work effectively together as we are committed to serving our residents and providing for our community.
