New Jefferson Residents:

We are happy that you have chosen the Village of Jefferson as your home. We know you will find Jefferson a warm and friendly community. Our location in Ashtabula County, along with our excellent schools and the services provided by the Village, make Jefferson an ideal place to live and raise a family.

In addition to the services of the Police and Fire Departments, sewer and trash are contracted through the Village. A sewer deposit of $40.00 is required for new sign-ups. This will be applied to your final bill and any balance will be refunded. Sewer charges are billed for water used and are billed after the water meter is read. Your final bill will be calculated after the water company has given us a final meter reading. It is important to note that any delinquent account is considered a lien for services and may be assessed, with penalties and charges, to the real property tax duplicate of the property owner.

The exclusive trash provider, for all single family and duplex Jefferson residence, is Waste Management. For service issues contact them directly at (440) 563-3433. You will be billed for this service by the Village, along with your sewer service, every two months. This service is billed ahead as to have the money on hand to pay the disposal company at the time of their billing. So, your first bill will be higher than normal (usually covers 3-4 months depending on how the cycle falls at the time you move in). When you move out, you will find a credit based on service actually used. If you live on the east side of town you will put your trash out on, Monday by 10PM and the west side will put out on Wednesday by 10PM. We ask that you notify us in advance of large amounts being put at the curb. Large amounts of household refuse will be cleaned up, but there will be an additional charge according to the amount set out This charge will show up on the next sewer / refuse bill.
Each customer is limited to four (4) 40 gallon cans or five (5) 40 gallon bags per week.

We offer brush pickup (April – September). The Village Streets Dept will pick up brush the first Monday of the month. Leaf pick up is (April, May, Oct, Nov). Leaves must be in biodegradable bags (available at the Jefferson Community Center). Once they have been down your street they will not be back again until next month. Be sure it is at the road Monday at 7:00 am. Please do not put anything at the curb until the weekend prior.

The Village of Jefferson has a local income tax of 1.5 percent. Section 890 of the Village code requires all residents to file a return even if no tax is due.
