Placing the utility account in a new resident’s name is accomplished automatically after the closing on a property. The seller must supply the new owner’s name for the account. Once a final water read has been made, the utility account is transferred into the new owner’s name. If a utility bill is in a renter’s name, the landlord or renter should arrange for a final water read and notify the Village of a change by phoning the Finance Department at 708-447-2700, ext. 231.
