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 10, 2022 at 7 pm.  Meetings are held in the Council Chambers of Village Hall; all meetings are open to the public.

Fall Cleanup is the week of October 17th–large items will be picked up on your usual trash day.  For details, contact Republic Services at (618) 656-6883.

The Village will be providing Fall yard waste pickup for the months of October, November and December through Republic Services.  Residents do not need to sign up for this service.  Starting Wednesday, October 5 (and weekly each Wednesday through December) you may put out up to 20 bags or cans of yard waste for pickup weekly.

Fall water system flushing will begin on October 3 and continue until completed.  During this process, you may experience occasional stained water and periods of low pressure.  We recommend checking your water quality before laundering clothes during this time frame.  Any questions can be directed to Water Plant Operator Jim Williams at (618) 570-5098.  We understand this is an inconvenience, but this task is necessary to help maintain lines and water quality throughout the year.

Our water office has moved to Village Hall!  While we are still not open to the public, payments can be made online or in our convenient night drop which is now located at the rear of Village Hall next to the middle entry door (between the Police Department and Fire Department).  Follow the signs on the building for the drop box location.  Call (618) 377-8013 to sign up for service.  Appointments can be made with our Zoning Department by calling 377-7697.
