There are a few things that residents can do to protect themselves and their neighborhoods from crime.
1. Please be vigilant in locking all vehicles that are left outside.  Very rarely do we see any type of forced entry during these thefts.
2. Do not leave valuables in a vehicle overnight.  Simply taking wallets, purses, electronic devices, etc. out of the car will keep a thief from trying to get into your car.
3. If you see something or somebody suspicious, please call 9-1-1 to report that activity immediately.
4. If you are a victim of theft, however minor, please call 1-800-249-0911 to report the theft.  Also, please try not to disturb any physical evidence that may have been left in or around the car

Allendale Public Utilities introduces new water and sewer rates, and connection fees

Allendale Public Utilities in cooperation with Raftelis Financial consultants conducted a Water and Wastewater Financial Plan Study.  This includes the development of financial plans for the water and wastewater enterprise to ensure financial sufficiency, meet operational and maintenance costs, ensure sufficient funding for capital replacement and refurbishment, and improve the financial health of the enterprise fund.  The intent is to help cover the cost increases that impact the provision of safe, clean drinking water and the collection and treatment of wastewater. 

The 2017 rate study, report recommends the quarterly fixed charges for water increase to $10.00 per quarter for a 3/4” or 5/8” meter, and the quarterly fixed charges for sewer increase to $14.00 per quarter for a 3/4” or 5/8” meter.   The volumetric and quarterly fixed charges set for 2018 will be increased by 2 percent each year after.

Along with adjusting the water and sewer rates, Allendale Public Utilities has decided to move away from the front footage fee and trunkage fee for new connections.  This will be replaced with a new connection fee.  The new fee will be based on the Residential Equivalent Unit with water at $2,256/REU and sewer at $4,147/REU.

This study can be reviewed here and is also filed with the Township Clerk’s Office.  It is available for public review and comment.

Those customers wishing to make official comment on the report can do so by sending a correspondence to the Clerk’s Office at 6676 Lake Michigan Dr., Allendale, MI  49401, by email to This email address is being protected from spambots.
