Following two years of study and analysis, the Village Board of Trustees is proposing to create a new stormwater utility including a utility fee.

The Board believes the utility will be the best long-term solution and will create a dedicated funding source that will allow Lake Bluff to increase the speed at which it builds and improves stormwater infrastructure. Before proceeding further, the Village is providing information to residents about this decision-making process. You can review the same facts the Village Board did and let the Village know if and how it should change its approach.

More detailed information will be provided in a series of informational meetings scheduled at the end of January. The below list of Frequently Asked Questions summarizes the issue. This FAQ was mailed in late December to all utility account holders in the Village as well as home addresses in areas that are not part of the Village's utility system (because they receive water from another source).
