Where People Make the Village

The Public Works Department is committed to providing residents with the highest quality of service. It maintains a level of excellence while meeting the needs of the community. The department consists of three divisions: Water, Sewer and Streets. The staff is available for emergency service 24 hours a day.

The Public Works staff is responsible for maintaining the Village’s infrastructure, which includes the water distribution system, the wastewater and storm water collection system, streets and public facilities. Other duties involve the maintenance of Village-owned properties, the 211th Street Metra Parking Lot, and the 203rd Street Metra Parking Lot.

Other Public Works services include snow removal, salting and sweeping public streets, storm debris pickup following severe storms, and the removal of dead trees that are located in the Village’s right-of-way.

Summer Water Restrictions

Restrictions on lawn sprinkling and other water usages are in effect from May 15 through September 15 each year. If the last digit in your street address is odd, you may sprinkle on odd calendar days. If it is even, sprinkle on even calendar days.

On your designated days, sprinkle only between the hours of 7 a.m. and 11 a.m., or 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. Violators of water use restrictions are subject to fines. In drought situations, these hours may be curtailed further. The latest watering schedule is available at 503-8200.

Each resident is required to contract with a private scavenger service. Residents are to call the vendor of their choice and arrange for trash pick-up. Choose from the following Scavenger Services: Star Disposal/Homewood Disposal at 748-8481 and Republic at 754-5460.
