Mail or bring the completed form to:
Lake County Public Works

You can fax the completed form to the Billing Department at 847-984-5582. Automatic payments do not begin until the billing cycle after your application is received. If you have a current bill, please pay it using one of the options listed below. When Direct Debit begins, your regular paper invoice will show the dollar amount that will be deducted from your bank account on the due date.

To cancel Direct Debit you must contact our office at least four business days prior to the current due date. Call your account representative at the phone number shown on your bill or call our general office at 847-377-7500.
