Village Clerk Report - March 22, 2016

Village Clerk Report

By: Village Clerk Debbie Williams
March 22, 2016

There is no village board meeting next week (March 29th) because it is the fifth Tuesday of the month.

The Free rain barrel program will begin again in April. We will be calling to resolve older issues first and then begin to take new orders.

As previously reported the website committee is in the process of reviewing the website for future updates. We are asking all elected officials, department heads and committee chairs to review their information. If information is outdated or not on the website at all it is because it was never received by the committee or is currently in the update process.

ELECTED OFFICIALS-If you are not included on the website it is because we have not received a picture and bio from you. We are asking all elected officials to provide updated information.

DEPARTMENT HEADS- Please submit current information on your department including names of staff and positions, useful links that pertain to your department, pictures of equipment and services performed if available.

COMMITTEE CHAIRS-Please submit all information pertaining to your committee including meeting dates and times, committee members, pictures from events, mission statements and flyers for upcoming events.

Check out the latest What’s Happening in Sauk Village for updates on the Easter Egg Hunts scheduled for this weekend. Sauk Village Church of God is scheduled from 1pm-3pm. We are looking forward to giving away 20,000 eggs, 100 baskets and 10 bikes.

Finally, Trustee Myers, my husband Frank and I were honored to attend a service for Park Forest Officer Tim Jones yesterday. The last word was that Officer Jones remains in critical but stable condition. The notice was sent late in the day and the church was packed. The outpouring of support for Officer Jones and his family was incredible.  Blue ribbons from the service were hung from poles at the Village Hall, Police Department and Fire Department to show our love and support for Officer Jones and all first responders.

Prayers to all beginning with the dispatchers who take the first call to the Police, Fire, ESDA and ambulance personnel who run into the danger as we run away from it.

That concludes my report.
