SERVICES & ACCOUNT BILLING

HOW DO I OPEN A NEW ACCOUNT:  

Because of the new Identity Theft Laws Utility Companies are required to
obtain proof of residency when opening a new account.  

NEW OWNERSHIP:

Countryside residents are required to obtain a Real Estate Transfer
before they are permitted to close on their property.  You can call our
office if you are selling or buying a new property to obtain this transfer
form.  If you live in La Grange, we recommend that you call our office to
obtain a final bill.  We will also need proof of ownership in order to
transfer the account into your name.

RENTAL PROPERTY:

We recommend that landlords contact the District when their tenant is
moving and request a final bill.  Any unpaid charges belong to the
property and a new account will not be opened for a new tenant until all
outstanding charges are paid.   A copy of the lease with the Renter's
name and phone number are required.

WHAT IF I HAVE A CREDIT ON MY ACCOUNT?

We do not refund credits.  We will issue a letter to the seller which will
allow them to include this credit in their closing costs.
