Please help the Town of Cicero keep your rates as low as possible by remembering “No wipes down the pipes”! For the Town to unclog and/or replace pumps, it is very expensive to do so. Here is a photo of items to please throw away in your trash can and not flush down your toilet.
Below is a photo of a $6,000.00-$10,000.00 sewer pump, like those in our system that was installed two (2) years ago, that should last up to fifteen (15) years. Unfortunately this pump has been destroyed from wipes and towels that are being flushed. Products that say they are “flushable” should not be flushed because they are hard on our sewer pumps too. For this to be repaired, it will cost up to $10,000.00 plus the labor it takes to replace or repair it. So please remember “No wipes down the pipes”.
For questions, please contact the Clerk Treasurer’s office at 317-984-4900.
