Public Works

The Public Works Department consists of seven divisions, each of which performs specific duties to maintain Village infrastructure.

The Public Works Department provides the essential services of maintaining the water system, sewer system and streets.  Serving the community involves many activities such as:

  • Traffic control
  • Forestry and Landscaping
  • Street Sweeping and Paving
  • Water Treatment and Pumping
  • Construction of Public Infrastructure
  • Water Main Replacement and Repairs
  • Sanitary and Storm Water Sewer Maintenance and Repairs
  • Contract Oversight for Refuse & Recycling Pick-Up and Mosquito Abatement
The Public Works Department business hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., however, a Public Works employee is always on call. For situations that occur after-hours that require immediate attention, contact the Police Department at (630) 873-4400 and they will notify the Public Works on-call employee.
