Take Precautions to Avoid West Nile Virus


Protect yourself and your family by taking simple steps to avoid the mosquito-borne West Nile Virus. Limit your time outdoors especially at dawn and dusk. Wear long-sleeves, pants and socks, and use insect repellent with DEET, primarily applied to clothing. Eliminate breeding sites by cleaning gutters, storing containers upside down, covering trash containers to keep out rainwater and emptying birdbaths and wading pools every few days. Keep grass and weeds cut short and close screen doors tightly.

Village inspectors are larviciding mosquito pools that are found and reported. Also, backyard catch basins can be treated by calling 847-671-8245.

Our Community Celebrates

Our annual Franklin Park Fest was a huge success. Visitors from around the region joined Franklin Parkers in enjoying the music, the food and the carnival. Train enthusiasts came out in droves to view unique and vintage train cars, train memorabilia and to celebrate our heritage at Railroad Day on Saturday. Jazz Night, featuring the Buddy Rich Big Band, drew its largest crowd. We further celebrated our heritage by commemorating our Village’s 125th Anniversary by honoring some of the Founding Families of Franklin Park. The Library produced a wonderful exhibit full of Franklin Park history with great stories about our town.

Green is Gold!!

Employing sustainable practices in your home and garden not only preserves the environment, but saves money as well. Using lawn clippings to mulch, instead of bagging it as yard waste, also reduces your costs. Rain barrels are a type of green infrastructure that captures rainwater from your roof and saves it for when you need it. By keeping this water out of the sewer system, rain barrels can also help prevent sewer overflows and flooding.

Make sure to leave the valve at the bottom of the barrel open a little year round to ensure that there is sufficient capacity when it rains. To obtain a rain barrel, go to www.mwrd.org. Use your dishwasher and washing machine only when full. Switching from hot water to warm water will cut your energy use in half.

Recycling – A Goal for Our Village and Our Planet

Did you know that when you recycle properly, you can save taxpayers money? The Village offers a 64 gallon recycling cart to all residents and we encourage you to use it, but please recycle properly. Do not put items into the recycling cart unless you are sure they are recyclable. Putting non-recyclable items into the recycling bin actually costs the taxpayer money.

You can click on the ​Recycling Guide icon below to see what can be recycled and how to recycle properly. You can also contact my office ​at 847-671-8236 to obtain that information.

 

Join your neighbors in making it a goal to recycle correctly!
