Late Fees/Disconnect Notices for Water Bills

Effective June 26, 2020:
The City of Benton will be entering into Phase 4 of the Restore Illinois Plan on Friday, June 26, 2020. Please remember that balances carried forward during the COVID-19 pandemic will remain on accounts. We will begin assessing late fees to the water bills again on July 16, 2020. The fees will not be assessed on the previous balance, only on the current balance due for July 15th if the balance has not been paid.
We will also be sending out disconnect notices once again. The tentative date to disconnect water will be Wednesday, July 29, 2020.
Please contact our office at 618-439-6131 to set up payment arrangements if you cannot pay your previous balance in full. Also, do not hesitate to contact us for any questions or concerns during this time.
