Metropolitan Sanitary District

COOK COUNTY PARISHES ONLY

Metropolitan Sanitary District charges everyone in Cook County for using its sanitary lines. Property owners see it on their property tax bill. As the Church is tax exempt, we must pay this fee separately. This is a separate fee from the water and sewer fee in Chicago.

This is for all Cook County parishes except for those under the Thorn Creek Sanitary District and St. James Sag Bridge.
