This Week in History 

On May 14, 1804, one year after the United States doubled its territory with the Louisiana Purchase, the Lewis and Clark expedition leaves St. Louis, Missouri, on a mission to explore the Northwest from the Mississippi River to the Pacific Ocean.

Thought for the Week 

"The doors of wisdom are never shut."


-- Benjamin Franklin   


Notice a Property Maintenance Concern?
This is a very busy time of the year for property maintenance concerns, ranging from unkempt lawns to unenclosed storage.  The Village has an active Property Maintenance Enforcement program, but it is not possible to inspect every property in the Village, every day.

If you noticed a property maintenance concern and would like to report it to the Village, please use the Village's Report a Concern feature on the Village website.  If you have never used this feature of the Village website before, click here to view a brief tutorial video on the Report a Concern feature. 
Have an iPhone?  If you do, you can download the Citizen Request Tracker App to report issues directly to the Village using your iPhone.  This is an easy and quick way to report issues without having to remember addresses or issues until you get home to your computer.
Tennis Court Crack Sealing and Restriping
The tennis courts at Ellsworth Park will undergo some routine maintenance in the coming weeks.  The work will include crack sealing and restriping of the tennis courts.  In addition, the three western tennis courts will also be stripped for Pickle Ball.  Never heard of Pickleball and want more information on this fun game?  The USA Pickleball Association has a lot of great information about this game and how to play it.

The Village anticipates having all this work completed by June so residents can enjoy the tennis courts this summer.
