Rain Barrel Reminder

Remember to disconnect and drain your rain barrel. A constant freezing and thawing of the water inside may cause cracks in the barrel. Open the barrel’s spigot and leave it open for the period of no use, this will avoid freeze damage to the hardware of the barrel. Also, clean out the spigot to unclog any sediment. Store your barrels upside down in the winter to keep them clean for future use. If you are a senior citizen or handicapped, please contact the Village for assistance.

Happy New Year! Let’s Make It a Year of Giving

It has been a great year in Franklin Park and I hope everyone had a healthy and happy holiday season. I was privileged to participate in several events throughout the season that demonstrated the power of volunteerism. It was my honor to be joined by my sons as we served dinner to 200 naval recruits from Great Lakes Training Command. Our American Legion Post 974 hosted the Thanksgiving feast in partnership with Post 159. After dinner, the recruits were able to make phone calls to their families. Volunteers from throughout the community joined me at this event which gave us a chance to thank these young men and women for their service.

I joined the Franklin Park Manila Lions Club to serve a holiday meal to our seniors and other community members. I am proud to see volunteers from all ages and walks of life coming together to give their time and energy to make the holidays brighter for all. I visited Enger School to read a story about construction and gave five lucky students the same reflective backpacks worn by our Franklin Park water meter readers. Knowing how volunteerism strengthens a community, as well as how generous and compassionate our citizens are,I am declaring 2019 A YEAR OF GIVING in Franklin Park!

Throughout 2019, we will be encouraging and challenging organizations and individuals to expand their volunteer opportunities and to find ways to partner together so that we may meet even more needs. We will be highlighting these activities in our newsletter and on social media. We will also make it the subject of our annual “Mayor for a Day” essay contest. I encourage everyone to share your time through volunteering. You will learn that there is no gift greater than the one of giving to others! Please share your ideas, activities and photos with us by emailing to villagenews@vofp.com.

Strengthening and Protecting Our Sewer Infrastructure

The public health and safety of our residents is one of our highest priorities. Carefully managing taxpayer dollars is also one of our main priorities. Our new infrastructure improvement effort will satisfy both of those goals. The Board has initiated a program to gradually strengthen aging sewer infrastructure by lining over 8,000 feet of existing pipes with polyester. Lining them will extend the lifespan of the pipes, save money on costly repairs and replacements and also help protect the water system. The $500,000 project will begin in March in the O’Hare Industrial Corridor from Mannheim Road west to the Union Pacific Railroad tracks. The effort should take approximately two months. No road closures are expected.


Welcome 2019!

Recently we asked our talented art students at Hester School to paint a festive holiday scene on a snow blade. Their beautiful work of art was on display at the Village’s Winterfest. On behalf of Mayor Pedersen, the Village Board and staff, we wish everyone a happy, healthy and joyous New Year in Franklin Park.
