Remember to call to start/stop utilities

Make sure you contact the Utility Billing office at 630.377.4426 to start or stop your utility service. We require one business day's notice to set up service or schedule final readings. We do not take daily readings so we are unable to back-date bills. Also, we will only work with the account holder regarding utility service. Office hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
