Freedom of Information Act Information & Request Instructions
Beginning January 1, 2010, key changes to the Act and the Open Meetings Act took effect to provide Illinois residents with a more open and accountable government. This will ensure that the public has access to information about their government and its decision-making process.
To submit a request to Village Hall for Village Business (including Gas & Water Department requests), you may write out or fill out a request form and submit to the Village Clerk in the mailbox on her door if outside of regular business hours (Mon-Fri, 7am-1pm).
