Protecting Your Pipes in Freezing Temperatures

With winter temperatures plunging into a deep freeze, a few simple steps can help you to protect your pipes from freezing. Start by opening the cabinet doors to help warm up the pipes. Also, you can prevent freezing by keeping a small trickle of water running through the pipes. To learn more helpful tips to prevent frozen pipes and what to do if your pipes are frozen, click here.

Warming Centers Available

Please stay safe during this extreme weather! Temperatures will remain dangerously cold over the next several days. Avoid travel if at all possible, and check on friends, family, neighbors, and the elderly. If you must travel and are travelling in a car, bring extra clothing to keep warm in case of breakdown.

Village and Park District of Franklin Park have made the Community Center located at 9560 Franklin and the Center at North Park facility located at 10040 Addison available as warming centers for those residents that need shelter during the cold weather. To report an emergency, dial 911. For non-emergency requests please call (847) 678-2444.


Train Horn Quiet Zone Update

The Citizens Advisory Board (CAB) on Train Horn Quiet Zones met for the first time on December 17. The CAB discussed the potential options for safety improvements necessary to obtain quiet zone designation from Scott Street to Thatcher Avenue. Engineers provided the CAB with data on the current risk index of all the crossings and which improvements would bring the risk down to a level sufficient for approval. A brief report on the progress of the proposed Train Horn Quiet Zone is now available as a link on the homepage's left-hand column and will be regularly updated. You may also click here to read the update.


Congratulations to Police Officer and Firefighter of the Year

Congratulations to Police Officer of the Year, Detective Vito Busse, and Firefighter of the Year, Ignacio Garcia, who were honored at the annual holiday dinner hosted by the Franklin Park-Manila Lions Club. Thank you to all our police officers and firefighters for their hard work and dedication to keeping our families safe and our neighborhoods protected.

Report Train Blockages at Intersections

The Village is aware of the long train stoppages at our intersections and is working with the railroads to alleviate this problem. We have contacted Canadian Pacific Railroad and as a result, their Police continue to conduct patrols on Calwagner, Scott, Ruby & Rose street crossings to prevent anyone from crossing through or around a stopped train.

You may contact the Canadian Pacific Police Control Center at     1-800-716-9132 in the event of a blocked crossing. Doing so will generate an alert that will go out to the appropriate departments/personnel.

Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)

A representative will be at Village Hall on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month, beginning November 5th, from 9:30 AM to noon to process LIHEAP applications. Please bring the following documents with you: a Social Security / SSI (monthly) benefit letter for 2014, your pension letter for the last 30 days, a valid Photo ID, Social Security Cards for all members in the household, proof of income for the last 30 days for all house members 18 years or older, a current NICOR and ComEd bill (disconnect notices have to be included if you are applying) and bring your Medical Card.

Brownfields Meeting



Happy New Year!

Last year, the Board of Trustees and our dedicated staff continued their tireless efforts in saving you- the taxpayer- money. Our cooperative partnerships with the State and the County have allowed us to find grants and awards that are improving our infrastructure and enhancing our quality of life.

Please read our January newsletter for a summary of all grants, awards and cost saving measures we have undertaken in the past two years. These grants and low interest loans allow us to improve our public safety at a much accelerated rate. The infrastructure improvements make us more attractive to new jobs, investments and developmentand provide support to our existing businesses.

Safeguarding the taxpayers’ money is a top priority for our Board and stabilizing our finances was critical to fulfilling that mission. Because of our strong financial management, our disciplined spending and our conservative budgeting, we have increased our bond rating four full categories, to an A rating, in the last few years.
