As a new resident, we realize you want to set up your new refuse, water and sewer service as quickly and easily as possible. Here’s what you need to do:
1. Fill out the Utility Services Application.
2. With a government-issued picture ID, come in to the Village Hall at 200 S. Hough Street, to set up your utility billing account. Sorry, but current federal rules designed to prevent identity theft make it necessary for you to set up this account in person, rather than online or on the phone. And please don’t forget to bring in your government-issued picture ID!
The Village provides instant communication to our residents via the Blackboard Connect service ("reverse 9-1-1"). With this service, we send personalized voice messages to residents and businesses, with specific information about time-sensitive or common-interest issues, such as road closures, utility problems, missing child alerts, crime alerts, etc. Participation is 100% free and completely voluntary. You can opt-out at any time. We know that maintaining the privacy of your personal information is important, and you can rest assured that the Village of Barrington will not share your information with anyone.
