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 of Barrington provides instant communication to our residents via Everbridge service ("reverse 9-1-1"). This service allows you to opt-in to receive notifications via phone calls, text messaging, e-mail, and more based on locations you care about. You can choose to receive notifications about events that may affect your home, workplace, family's schools and more. This system will be used to notify you about imminent threats to health and safety, as well as informational notifications that affect your locations or work environments. The information that you provide will be used only for the Village of Barrington for notification purposes. We will not give or sell your contact or location information to any vendor or other organization.
