As a result of the severe weather earlier this evening, crews are working to address a number of power outages and downed tree limbs throughout the Village.
Com Ed reports that 2,000 residents remain out of power this morning due to the severe weather last night. Com Ed also reports that they are continuing to experience technical difficulty with their outage system and have been unable to provide reliable updates regarding restoration times. The Village is continuing to be in regular contact with Com Ed.
Public Works crews are removing limbs from the streets and sidewalks. In order to give residents time to collect any limbs on their property, a special brush pick up will be held starting Monday, August 17. For more information regarding brush pickup guidelines, please visit the Village website.
