Public Works is comprised of three divisions that perform all the duties that help provide us with water, utilities and help maintain its overall physical infrastructure. It is comprised of three divisions: Water & Sewer, Streets and Fleet Maintenance. Each division performs critical functions for our Village and is described in more detail below.
Water & Sewer Division
The Village has four combined sewer overflow locations along the Des Plaines River. To view information related to any discharges along the River from the Village or neighboring upstream communities, visit the "Combined Sewer and Overflow Event Information" page available on the website of the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (MWRD).
The Village Streets Division handles all public street, right-of-way and landscaping responsibilities including street repairs, our forestry program, brush removal, street sweeping, alley maintenance, snow removal and traffic and street sign replacement.
Fleet Maintenance Division
The Village owns and maintains many specialized and common vehicles for providing services to our community. The Fleet Maintenance Division provides and coordinates all vehicle maintenance, repair and mechanical enhancements for our entire fleet - including our Police and Fire vehicles.
