Message from Village President Greg Szymanski

With the President and Governor’s recent extension of the STAY AT HOME order through April 30th, now, more than ever, we want to ask you to call and check on your friends, neighbors, and relatives, especially those with medical conditions or who are vulnerable to the virus.

If you or someone you know needs medication picked up, food, or needs help, PLEASE reach out between the hours of 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. to Washington Township at 946-2026 or the Village Hall at 946-2261.

Denis Tatgenhorst, Community Policing Officer is also available at any time at 708-296-1715 to address urgent needs.

Whatever number you call, we will try to get you in contact with the resource you need. We’re all in this together, and we need to support one another. Stay safe, stay healthy, and remember SOCIAL DISTANCING!

We are encouraging our residents and customers to use the drop box located just outside the front doors of the Village Hall, the E-Pay system on the Village website or the U.S. Mail for municipal payments.  Anyone using the E-Pay system for any payments will NOT be charged a convenience fee.
  • We are asking anyone who needs to conduct business with the Village which requires a physical presence, to call the Village Hall, to call and make an appointment and we will guide you from there.
  • Late fees for water bills are being suspended until the next billing cycle. Water shut offs are suspended until July 1st.  As always, if anyone needs help making payments, please contact the Village Hall and we will be happy to make arrangements with you.

Households are encouraged to respond when they receive their invitation. Depending on how likely the area is to respond online, households will receive either an invitation encouraging them to respond online or by phone (about 112 million households), or an invitation along with a paper questionnaire (about 31 million households).

All invitations will include a short phrase in English and 12 additional languages inviting people to respond online or by phone in their language. In areas where 20 percent or more of the households need Spanish assistance, the invitations will be in both English and Spanish.

All households receiving an invitation in the mail will receive a second letter in the mail shortly after reminding them to respond. Then, households that still haven’t responded will receive a series of additional reminders, including a paper questionnaire in mid-April. Census takers will follow up with households that don’t respond to collect responses in person.
