Welcome to the City of Herrin
I personally welcome you to Herrin, a city on the move and growing. In the heart of beautiful Southernmost Illinois, Herrin is a great place to live, work, play, raise a family and do business. If you’re already a part of our community, thank you. If you’re considering relocating your home or business to Herrin - or simply thinking about a visit -- please do. We would love to have you. The door to the Mayor’s office is open so come by and say hello.
Mayor of the City of Herrin
The Herrin Water Department has new online payment software. You will need to create a new account and register as a new user. Call the water department at 618)942-3177 for your new water bill account number and last payment amount as these are needed for set up. Once you have your new account number, you will need to add the account to your profile. If you had an auto pay with a credit card or check on the old system, you will need to set that back up again. Auto drafts from a checking account, where you brought in a voided check to the office, remain unchanged.
Our Region, Region 5 is now TIER 2 under Phase 4 of the Guidelines.
