Independence Day Reminders
July 4, 2024

  • Village Hall will be closed on Thursday, July 4th, in observance of Independence Day. Garbage collection will not be impacted by the holiday and will follow the regular schedule.
  • The Will County GIS Division has a map of upcoming 4th of July fireworks shows in Will County! Visit this link to find a fireworks show: Will County GIS Fourth of July Celebrations Map
  • Firework Safety: The safest way to enjoy fireworks on the 4th of July is to attend a local fireworks show by professionals. Stay at least 500 feet away from the show.
  • Picnic Safety: Avoid leaving food in the hot sun to prevent foodborne illnesses, and always supervise a grill when it is in use. Ensure children and pets stay away from the grill when it is in use.
  • Beach Safety: Keep an eye on the forecast to plan for your beach trip. The US National Weather Service Chicago Illinois division is a great resource. Frequent weather updates are posted on their Facebook page: NWS Chicago Facebook
  • Pet Safety: While fireworks are entertaining to most, they often frighten pets. Keep your pets in quiet rooms with some of their favorite toys to keep them busy during fireworks shows.
