Mowing Lawns, Clearing Clutter Helps Everyone

Garbage bins should always be closed with lids securely fastened to prevent critters from reaching a food source. Keep the area around your garbage bins free of trash, food scraps and spills.

Make sure to pick ripe fruits and vegetables in your garden right away to eliminate a food source for pests and insects. Also, please remember to clean-up after your pet while on walks and in your own backyard. Dog waste is full of disease causing bacteria and parasites that can be harmful to humans and is a food supply for rodents. Also, do not leave pet food or water bowls outside which can attract unwanted wildlife.

If you are disabled or elderly and need assistance complying, please call (847) 671-4800. Also, if you see properties that need to be maintained, please call the Village.




Clean-up After Your Pets

For the safety and enjoyment of everyone, please keep your furry friend on a leash and always clean-up after them, even on your own property. Dog waste is full of more disease-causing bacteria and parasites than other types of waste and can be harmful to humans and spread disease to other dogs. Remember to carry extra waste bags with you wherever you roam with your four-legged pal. Your neighbors thank you for your consideration and for practicing good pet owner etiquette.

West Nile Precautions

Summer heat and rain brings a threat of the mosquito-borne West Nile Virus. With this in mind, public health officials are reminding residents to take precautions to avoid bites and eliminate breeding sites. Limit your time outdoors at dusk and sunrise and carefully apply insect repellent with DEET, primarily applied to clothing. Remember to clean gutters and down spouts and to store all containers upside down, cover trash cans and empty birdbaths and wading pools regularly. Village inspectors are larviciding mosquito pools that are found or reported. Backyard catch basin can be treated by calling 847-671-8245. While the risk of contracting the virus is small, please take precautions through October.
