Utility Billing (water, sewer, and refuse collection) is completed by the Finance Department staff. Billing is made bi-monthly for residential customers and monthly for commercial/industrial customers and includes a basic user charge and a flood control fee and other charges and fees specific to individual accounts. The Village receives Lake Michigan Water from the Northwest Water Commission via the City of Evanston. Well water is not used in the Village water system although deep wells are maintained as back up water sources. You can pay your Utility Bill in a variety of ways... 200 E.
