MADISON - Water rates in the village of Belleville have not increased since 2010, but would jump by 42 percent, according to a rate request recently filed with the Public Service Commission. The Municipal Water and Sewer Utility needs more revenue to finance bonds it took out last year to finance new mains along Wisconsin 69, complete a $1.3 million well project and extend service beyond the Duluth Trading Co. property, said Village Administrator Brian Wilson. Residential customer water bills currently average about $291 annually for 4,000 gallons used monthly, said Wilson.
