The Village of Genoa has increased rates associated with three of its utilities.

Administrator Kevin Gladden said increasing costs of doing business were the reason for the hikes, adding they were needed to keep systems on track financially.

Ordinances passed last week by village council increased the sewer permit and application process from $600 to $1,200 and the rate for underground electric tap-in and storm sewer tap-in each from $200 to $400. The new rates take effect 30 days from the time of passage.
