Utility Services Provided
The Village of Morton owns, operates, and maintains the systems that supply water, natural gas, and control storm and waste water in the village. We take pride in our Utility Services. Morton has always planned ahead and cared for the systems for which we are responsible. This enables us to keep our costs down and our service above other communities.
The services provided vary; some customers will only have water, storm and waste water service. Other areas of the Village are supplied with gas service as well as the other services. The cost for each service will be itemized on your bill each month.
