Kildeer Only Police Patch


The Kildeer Police Department would like residents to know of an important  safety program, the Illinois Premise Alert Program (PAP).  PAP is a safety program that supports individuals living with disabilities as well as emergency responders that are dispatched to calls at a specific address. PAP allows families to voluntarily notify the police and first responders about their special circumstances free of charge.  To learn more about the Premise Alert Program (PAP) and download a form, click here.  Please share this information with friends and neighbors, it could save a life.  


Drivers who travel along Ela Road will notice the speed limit will change from 45 MPH to 40 MPH from Long Grove Road north for about a quarter mile. 


LCDOT has also begun a preliminary engineering study which will look at improvements to the intersection of Ela Road and Long Grove Road.  LCDOT will host a public meeting later this year to gather public input on the project.  Construction is currently programmed to begin in the year 2019.




With the spring rains come opportunities for mosquitoes to breed. Be vigilant about eliminating sources for mosquitoes to breed and use protection to avoid contracting West Nile virus.

The Village's contract with MC Squared comes to an end in September.  Since the start of the contract with MC Squared there have been several changes to the billing process that make having a contract with energy suppliers like MC Squared less attractive. 


Recent cost adjustments related to transmission and capacity have increased the price, and a ComEd Purchased Energy Adjustment (PEA) of plus or minus one-half a cent every month  make it very difficult to guarantee that the charge for electricity by MC Squared or any other supplier will be less than the ComEd charge.  


After September 2015 you can expect your electric bill to increase  from the current rate of 4.9 cents per kilowatt hour to about 7 cents.  Since none of the alternative electricity suppliers will promise that a contract rate will always be below or equal to the ComEd rate, many villages are not renewing electric aggregation contracts and are returning to ComEd.


In order to minimize the increase in your electric bill you can lower your electricity demand by switching to LED light bulbs.  Not only do these bulbs use substantially less electricity but they can last up to 8 or 10 years. 


COSTCO is now offering reduced prices for LED bulbs.  The sale price is subsidized by ComEd to encourage your conversion to lower energy using bulbs.  Plan to take advantage of this offer while it lasts.


The Village will keep you posted regarding any potential savings through aggregation or other energy conservation initiatives.  In the meantime, beware of electric suppliers who offer low rates for a few months then lock you into a long term contract with rates well above those charged by ComEd.
