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 September 12, 2022 at 7 pm.  Meetings are held in the Council Chambers of Village Hall; all meetings are open to the public.

The Labor Day Homecoming carnival is set for September 2-5 in Central Park–come out and enjoy the Bethalto World’s Fair!

Our water office is moving to Village Hall!  Payments can still be made online or in our convenient night drop at the front of the “old” building; Call (618) 377-8013 to sign up for service.  Appointments can be made with our Zoning Department by calling 377-7697.
