Pay Your Bill


The Village of St. Joseph prides itself on providing superior customer service and accurate information for the community we serve. The Village processes roughly 1,800 sewer accounts each month. Utility Billing also handles requests to connect & disconnect, answer customer inquiries, calculate leak adjustments (with verification from American Water), and all billing maintenance necessary to send accurate and timely bills to our customers.

In addition to this, administrative staff will be able to support and assist you with other billing needs through the Village. These include (but are not limited to) parks facilities rentals, building permits, and outside water meters.
