To read your bill and understand your charges. Our system converts all reads into 100's versus 1,000's. For example, if you have a usage of 60 you have actually used 6,000 gallons. You can take your usage and follow the example:
60 - 15 = 45
15 = $26.20 (minimum bill from 0-15 usage)
45 x $.71 = $31.95
$31.95 + $26.20 = $58.15
60 x $.75 = $45.00
Total bill due: $103.15
Meters are read the 20th of each month by Village of Mackinaw Public Works employees. They take actual readings of the meters for billing. Bills are mailed the 1st of each month and are due on the 20th of the same month.
