Utility Billing Notification

Interest imposed on delinquent accounts


During the 2017 Audit, it was noted that the Town of Lyons had not been implementing Section 13-1-180 of the Lyons Municipal Code - an ordinance imposing a .0666% interest rate per month (eight percent [8%] per year) on any past due utility accounts.


This charge will be effective and computed on the September 2018 billing cycle. Please bring any delinquent amounts current, to avoid the assessed interest charges on delinquent balances of more than 30 days.

Remember, the Town now accepts credit card payments at www.xpressbillpay.com.

Road Work at SH-66 and US-36

Repaving to take place week of August 6


American Civil Constructors' schedule for repaving the bridge deck at SH-66 and US-36 is now anticipated to occur the week of August 6.

This work will require traffic to be reduced to a single lane of alternating traffic through the work zone, likely resulting in congestion.

Update: Recycling Center Moving to 2nd Avenue

Anticipated to move by mid-August


Due to construction for library, the Town and associated partners have begun preparation for relocating the recycling center (4th Ave. and Railroad) to the south side of the Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP) center (198 2nd Ave.). Construction for the new ADA-accessible facility is well underway; however, due to minor engineering setbacks, the Town now estimates the move to be complete by mid-August

The Town does not anticipate any lapse in availability in single-stream recycling* between locations - recycling will remain available at its current location, and a new dumpster will be replaced at the new site, upon its completion. 

*The availability and schedule of the cardboard-specific bin may vary during the relocation period. Updates will be sent as information is received.
