Mount Prospect is now offering a new payment option for water/sewer and refuse utility bills.

You may now opt to pay through direct debit of your checking or savings account.


The funds will be withdrawn on the due date, avoiding late fees.

If you choose to take advantage of the direct debit program, it is still necessary to provide a water meter reading.

You may submit the reading through the village Web site at, submit the reading via your bill stub or submit the reading verbally by calling (847) 392-6000.

There is no fee associated with this program.

If you have any questions concerning this program, contact utility billing at (847) 392-6000.
