Budget Information

Glenbard Wastewater Financial Information

The Authority has adopted a calendar year budget to coincide with a January 1st to December 31st budget year which is consistent with the lead agency, the Village of Glen Ellyn. Most of the revenues for the Authority operations are derived through monthly payments from the two villages. Additional revenue is realized from connection fees collected on new structures built into the service area, landfill Leachate treatment, cellular tower land lease agreements, and interest income.

There are two major funds: Operations and Maintenance (Fund 270) and the Capital (Fund 40):

Allocation of Operation and Maintenance expenses for the Authority are split between the Villages of Glen Ellyn and Lombard according to wastewater flows contributed by each village based on the previous five year average. The current flow split computation is 46.16% Glen Ellyn and 53.84% Lombard.

Allocation of Capital Improvement expenses for the Authority are split between the Villages of Glen Ellyn and Lombard according to a mechanism that uses a fixed cost split of 50% of the annual capital contributions funded by each member, the remaining 50% shall be split based upon the average of the previous five year total area flow…see formula below

The Members’ annual contribution rate for the Capital Equipment Replacement
Fund Split shall be based upon:

LOMBARD
(Fiscal Year Capital Expenses x .25) = fixed contribution
(Fiscal Year Capital Expenses x .50) x (LOMBARD’s average percent of the total
area flow for the previous five (5) years) = variable contribution

GLEN ELLYN
(Fiscal Year Capital Expenses x .25) = fixed contribution
(Fiscal Year Capital Expenses x .50) x (GLEN ELLYN’s average percent of the
total area flow for the previous five (5) years) = variable contribution

Sixteen remote flow meters are located at key points in the Authority’s system to monitor flows from the respective villages for billing purposes. Flow meters are also utilized to identify flows associated with non-member entities such as DuPage County (located to the north side of the Authority’s planning area), and Illinois American Water (located to the south side of the Authority’s planning area).
