Chief Charles “Chuck” Breese Resigns

 Charles “Chuck” Breese

On behalf of the citizens of Waterman, the Board of Trustees, and myself, I would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to Chief Charles “Chuck” Breese for his 37 years of  honorable and faithful service to the Village of Waterman.

The children will especially miss having him stop to talk and play with them.

We wish Chief Breese happiness, success and health as he begins this new phase of life. Thank you, Chief!!

Water Main

As of this morning February 20th, there has been a new water leak detected.  This has been an ongoing process.  A few leaks have been located and immediately fixed. Once the current leak has been identified, JULIE must do a locate.  It is expected that Public Works will need to do a dig to make repairs. Winter weather and frozen ground prevent easy location. Your patience is very much appreciated!

Water Bills are due today, January 12th, 2018 by midnight!
