Prepare for Freezing Temperatures

The National Weather Service indicated that within the last 24 hours area temperatures have dipped below freezing for the first time in a month.  Chilly temperatures are expected to continue for the next couple of days and could return later this season. The Village wants to make sure you are prepared for freezing temperatures. 

Please review our tips for preventing and thawing frozen pipes HERE.  While the Village is not recommending it, a few of our customers have had their service disconnected as a precaution. If you have had your water service disconnected in the past, you must let the Utilities Department know by Thursday, December 22, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. The Village will not do disconnects after hours, or on weekends and holidays.  A reconnection fee of $62.71 will apply if you disconnect your service.

Other winter weather tips include:

  • Preparing your home to keep out the cold with insulation, caulking, and weather stripping.
  • Making sure carbon monoxide detectors and smoke alarms are working.
  • Gathering supplies in case you need to stay home for several days without power (medication, pet supplies, extra batteries, radios, flashlights, blankets, etc.)
