Two Water Main Breaks 1/15/2018

There are two water main breaks, one at the 100 block of May Mart Drive and the other at the 200 block of School Avenue. Please use caution while driving through these areas. We will post again if a boil order comes in effect.

The electrical system infrastructure upgrade is currently in progress. Some areas will receive new wires, either overhead or underground and others will receive utility pole replacements.

Rochelle Municipal Utilities wants the community to be aware that there will be RMU utility workers and/or contract workers in the area of Route 38 North and in the Brookside Drive area. Boring for the underground wires will be occurring in the back yards. The work will be done mostly Monday through Friday during the hours of 7:00 am until 5:00 pm. However, some Saturday work may also take place.

Please remind children to stay away from the equipment. Residents should also be aware that RMU workers may be on their property marking the placement of underground infrastructure and upgrading the system. Residents are asked to please leave the flag markers in their yard until the work is completed.

Homeowners are not required to place their secondary service underground; however, RMU is offering an underground incentive to homeowners in the area where work is occurring. If a homeowner has an overhead secondary service going to the home and wishes to replace it with an underground service, RMU may pay for the materials needed to get the new underground service to the home.

If anyone has any questions or concerns, they can contact the RMU Customer Service Department at 815-562-4155 for more information.

Landscape Waste Fee Change Effective 1/1/18

Northern Illinois Disposal Services provides waste collection which includes garbage, yard waste and recycling to the residents of the City of Rochelle. In addition, the City of Rochelle Street Department provides city residents with large brush pickup and seasonal leaf vacuuming. In an effort to cover all of the City of Rochelle Street Department’s costs for landscape waste processing, the city council approved increasing the landscape waste fee from $1.49 to $3.13, effective January 1, 2018.

Currently, all garbage and landscape fees are listed on the RMU utility bill as “Garbage”. In order to provide more transparency to our customers, the garbage fee and the city landscape waste fee will be listed on the bill as two separate line items. For example, one line item will state “Garbage $9.87” and the other line item will state “Landscape Waste $3.13”.

If you have any questions, please call the RMU Customer Service Department at 815-562-4155.
