Deduct Meters:  A new program has been implemented by the Village of Freeburg for residents to receive sewer credit for filling a pool or other water usages that do not enter the sanitary sewer by purchasing a deduct water meter.  Meters are currently available at Ace Hardware at a cost of $95.00. Once a meter is purchased, the resident must bring the meter to Village  Hall to register it.  These deduct meters will be read once a year in October to determine the amount of your yearly sewer credit. A $5.00 fee will be charged for reading this meter and included on your October utility bill.  The Village of Freeburg will no longer issue any sewer credits for pools unless you have the deduct meter. If you have any questions, please contact Village Hall at 539-5545.
