The Citizens Utility Board (CUB) will analyze utility bills at a free clinic to help Palos Heights residents save money on utilities. This utility bill clinic will take place on May 7 from 6:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m. at Palos Heights Public Library and is co-sponsored by the Cook County Department of Environment and Sustainability. Consumers should bring their gas, electric and phone bills for a free, one-on-one consultation with a CUB expert, who will search for ways to lower utility costs.
CUB will give consumers information on:
- How to spot unnecessary charges on natural gas, electric and phone bills.
- Energy efficiency programs and rebates that can help people cut their utility bills.
- New smart meters and programs such as Peak Time Savings and Hourly Pricing that could save consumers money.
Registration is required for this event. You can register by clicking here or in person at the library, prior to the clinic. The Palos Heights Public Library is located at 12501 S. 71st Ave., Palos Heights.

A Message from the President
I believe that Cook County should be a world-class model of sustainability. We are working not only to boost sustainability practices throughout County government, but also to join forces with local governments, nonprofits and business, to accomplish more than we could separately in making each of Cook County’s communities sustainable. To further this work, I appointed Deborah Stone as the County’s first Chief Sustainability Officer, and as Director of the Department of Environmental Control. I also recognize that Cook County needs to share ideas and collaborate with a diverse group of community leaders and sustainability experts. In March 2012, I appointed the Cook County Sustainability Advisory Council to help lift our vision higher and give us access to best practices. You can meet the Council members and read more about their mission in the “Advisory Council” section of this website. Toni Preckwinkle,Cook County Board President
