Public Works Facility

In 2000, with the passage of a Bond referendum, a new facility to house the Public Works Department was built. The earlier facility, which was built in 1950, had become outdated and inadequate to meet the needs of the Village and was a neighborhood eyesore.

The new facility incorporates protected storage for all of the equipment, indoor maintenance shops for equipment repair and storage, protected areas for storage of repair parts and maintenance materials, a salt storage shed that meets IEPA guidelines, and sufficient open area to allow for the flow of equipment and machinery to maintain the Village infrastructure.
