NOTICE – From the Village of Bolivar Treasurer:

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Village of Bolivar is seeking full participation from our residents to update their contact information with our office to better prepare for us in the event of having to issue an emergency public alert. Please send an email to: with your name, address, preferred phone number and email address. Feel free to add emails for each of your household members, however, we are asking for one primary phone contact per residence.

This notice is only for those who currently receive a water bill from the village of Bolivar; this is not township wide as it only pertains to current Bolivar utility customers only.

Please share this with your neighbors to help us better serve you and get this message out more effectively.

Please be advised, the village offices are operating on a limited basis. However, voicemails, emails, regular mail and the utility box will continue to be checked daily. Be sure to visit this website for additional updates.

During this challenging time, the street department has resumed composting pickup. We ask, since there will only be one person performing this task at this time, not to over fill your totes and for all limbs not to exceed 3 foot in length.

On behalf of the village of Bolivar, please be safe by taking the necessary precautions. Thank you!
