The Village is aware that there are homes still without power. The Village is tracking restorations and communicating with ComEd to urge restoration. The latest update we have received is such that ComEd Crews are on-site throughout the Village. Crews plan to work non-stop to restore service. We currently have 224 homes out of power. ComEd states that they plan to restore all homes today.  


HEAT ADVISORY!
The Heat Advisory extends from Tue, Jun 14, 12:00 PM CDT to Wed, Jun 15, 8:00 PM CDT. Hot temperatures and high humidity may cause heat illnesses to occur. Drink plenty of fluids, find and stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke is an emergency! Call 9 1 1.

The Village Hall is a cooling center, located at 447 N. Catherine Avenue. If you are concerned about a neighbor’s well-being during the heat advisory, check on them - or call the Village at 708-354-0225 or 708-352-7711 after hours.
 
TREES, LIMBS & DEBRIS
The Village’s Public Works crews and contractor crews are out addressing parkway trees, branches and other debris. The Village’s contractor is removing broken hanging branches from parkway trees. Public Works crews are busy clearing streets and sidewalks of the fallen branches and debris.
  • Friendly reminder: PLEASE DO NOT put branches or brush in the street, it needs to be in the parkway with stump-end facing the curb. 
  • The Village does not remove branches on private property. Please cut up branches and place on the parkway and the Village will remove.
  • Storm damage removal will take several days. We kindly ask that residents be patient with the ongoing removal process.

Several ComEd crews are on site in our community and working to restore electricity. Restorations are ongoing and there is no additional information regarding estimated time for restoration other than what can be found online at: https://www.comed.com/Outages/CheckOutageStatus/Pages/default.aspx 

The Village is working with ComEd to place a COOLING BUS at Brook Park school, located at 1214 Raymond Ave in La Grange Park. The cooling bus will be placed on 29th Street, between Raymond and Harrison, across from Yena Park. We are hopeful that it is delivered by noon. 

 **If you see downed power lines, leave the area immediately and then call ComEd at 1-800-EDISON-1 (1-800-334-7661).
