Perched upon the edge of the rolling Illinois prairie is the Village of Bethalto. Low green hills and picturesque farms frame this attractive community of nearly 10,000 residents, one of the three fastest-growing communities in Madison County. The peaceful setting and relaxed lifestyle make Bethalto an ideal place to raise a family. Yet, its close proximity to the rest of the St. Louis metropolitan area means that your family will never exhaust the tremendous variety of cultural opportunities and entertainment nearby.


The next Village Board meeting is October 11 at 7 pm.

Fall Flushing begins October 4 and will continue throughout October.  There may be periods of discoloration and low water pressure during flushing.  For more details, visit our Public Works page.

Our water office remains closed to walk-in visitors, but payments can be made online or in our convenient night drop at the front of the building; appointments can be made with our Zoning Department by calling 377-7697.
