The Village, as required by law, posts its Annual Water Quality Report in June, you can locate the 2020 Water Quality Report at the link below. The water is safe to drink and had no violations in 2020.
Water System Update
The Village’s contractor has completed all repairs to Well No. 4, it appears that the cloudy water has disipated. The Village’s water has been tested and proven safe to drink.
Looks like warm weather is here and with that warmer weather comes a burst of outdoor activity. The Village has received a number of complaints from vacant property owners that they are finding debris, dirt piles, food waste, branches and unclaimed sports equipment, etc. on their properties. The Village is asking everyone to be a good neighbor and NOT:
As a friendly reminder, per Village Code Sections 5-2-2, 5-2-4, 5-2-7 through 5-2-10, disposing of garage refuse, anywhere other than a covered container or without the property owner’s permission can be issued a violation and fined, the Village would really like not to have to do that; so, if you have debris or tree branches, please take full advantage of the Waste Management’s weekly refuse and/or yard waste pick up. Treat hunting for the golf balls or baseballs or softballs like an Easter egg hunt, the person that collects the most wins chocolate.
Thanks for being a good neighbor!
**Update, as of 05/24/21 – This is still planned for Wednesday, May 26, 2021**
Last year, due to COVID-19, the Village deferred a tree removal because it would require Commonwealth Edison shutting off the electricity for a number of hours to over 90 homes. The tree’s condition has further deteriorated and the tree must be removed. As a result of this need, the Village has scheduled this tree removal for Wednesday, May 26, 2021. Please be advised that on Wednesday, May 26, 2021, between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m., there will be no power to many homes in town. A list of those homes is linked below.
