Utility Billing

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. 

Utility Payment

You can pay your Utility Bill in a variety of ways.

Direct Debit

To have your utility bill payments automatically deducted from your checking or savings account on the bill's due date, complete and submit an Authorization for Direct Debit application (PDF).

Other Payment Methods

Utility bills can also be paid online, by mail, or in person at the Finance counter in Village Hall. Also, for your convenience, there is a 24-hour drop box located in front of the Village Hall.
