Mailbox Damage Information

If your mailbox has been damaged by a Village snow plow contact the Village hall at (847) 356-6100 or submit a request for service through the Village Request for Service System.  The Village will replace damaged mailboxes with a standard US Postal Service delivery mailbox or provide the resident up to $25 reimbursement to replace the mailbox themselves.

Safe Winter Driving

Avoid driving while you're fatigued. Getting the proper amount of rest before taking on winter weather tasks reduces driving risks.

  • Never warm up a vehicle in an enclosed area, such as a garage.
  • Make certain your tires are properly inflated.
  • Never mix radial tires with other tire types.
  • Keep your gas tank at least half full to avoid gas line freeze-up.
  • If possible, avoid using your parking brake in cold, rainy and snowy weather.
  • Do not use cruise control when driving on any slippery surface (wet, ice, sand).
  • Always look and steer where you want to go.
  • Use your seat belt every time you get into your vehicle.
