We're so impressed with EGV as a council-manager form of government, along with the lovely community, and of course the famous EGV business park, we decided to open our new 6,300 ft factory right here... in 2018. Within a few months, Jacobsen Lenticular Tool & Cylinder Engraving Technologies Co. (JacoTech) will be manufacturing custom cnc diamond turned cylinder engraved plastic processing mold parts by using our new large sized Mazak Integrex CNC Machining Centers. We appreciate the help and hand holding we received from village hall and the various business departments within, first class service! Watch out for our open house announcement coming soon with ribbon cutting ceremony and much more... See More

They still use red light cameras, which studies have consistently proven don't reduce accidents, but may actually increase them. The only reason to keep these is to shake down motorists, who may not b...e aware they even did anything wrong. I won't be spending any more money in this community. See More

Not one street in EGV has been plowed ten hours after snowfall stopped. EGV trucks driving around with plows up doing nothing. All surrounding suburbs streets clear! How is this okay?

Jet noise from the (fairly) new runways at Chicago Mayor Immanuel's Airport, formerly known as O'Hare. It's mind boggling that the mayor of EGV and the rest of the city council would rather have their... photos taken at new store openings than try and resolve this problem. The noise from the increased air traffic from the northerly runways has become so bad we are currently looking to move. Most of my neighbors aren't too thrilled either. A couple of messages I've sent to this site in the past was like abandoning a baby on a door step. All I received was a shoulder shrug answer and a "we have no control over this problem, why don't you complain to the Chicago Department of Aviation site?" solution. That's another dead end street too. Here's an idea, why doesn't the city of EGV make an ACTUAL effort and get together with the rest of the surrounding suburbs affected by the noise and file a class act law suit and prevent Chicago from using the new runways so much? A similar situation occurred in Los Angeles and was successful. It's painfully obvious this town has no intention of making any effort to rectify the problem. Elk Grove USED to be pretty good town to live in but no one wants to live in a perpetual flight pattern with jets flying over your home 20 hours a day. See More

I've lived and worked in this village since 1960. I raised my son here and he has become a resident. I might not always agree with every decision that's made but never, ever do I doubt that the Mayo...r and the trustees do their very best to make the best decisions they can for the good of everyone. I'm proud to be a resident of this lovely community. See More

Could you please contact the bank owned land next to Udall Park. The grass is up to my waist. It needs to be cut. It brings health issues to the kids that play soccer in the park - West Nile. It'...s near Grove and Perrie. See More

I received a notice-my very well trimmed bushes extend over sidewalk. I will trim.
What about other rules not enforced?
cars-vans with co. writing
cabs parked in drives
12 people living one house
boats-campers in drives all year
dead village trees-dangerous I called but no response
decks installed permit?

I'm sure my two little bushes will make a big impact on the beauty of Elk Grove.

City still allows Kelly Miller Circus in their town. A known abuser with court documented incidences.

Since he doesn't have the guts to do it himself I figured I'd let you all at the village know that there is a resident in the village who is a better mayor, village trustee, police officer, firefighte...r, and public works employee than all of you.

He knows everything and would run circles around our entire village staff. Attached in comments are some of his criticisms of our village.

Watch out Elk Grove, Jeff Snyder is better than you and all of us. I just wanted to make sure he gets the credit he deserves!

strongly suggest avoiding this scummy little shithole 'burb completely, as long as they maintain their "red light camera program" If they accepted cash for the fine, I'd wipe my ass with it first!

On February 15, Fire Station 10 on Meacham officially closed for reconstruction. Retired Fire Lieutenant Mike Turner, who worked in Fire Station 10 on the day it opened, joined the crew at Station 10 in a “Final Roll Call” prior to the closing.

All personnel and equipment have relocated to the trailer and garage at the Biesterfield Public Works facility. Personnel will operate there and the fire engine and ambulance will respond from there until the new fire station is completed in the first quarter of 2019.

Special thanks to Enclave for Entrepreneurs at O'hare for hosting this month's BLF luncheon. The topic focused on How to Build a Talent Pipeline.

Several great speakers joined us to motivate our businesses to take action and close the skills gap. We looked at the current market trends, talked about why business culture matters and emphasized the value of apprenticeship programs.

The personnel and equipment from Fire Station 10 at 676 Meacham, have been moved into a temporary fire station, immediately adjacent to the Public Works facility on Biesterfield Road. The fire engine and Ambulance will respond from the public works garage, under an arrangement made between the two Village departments.

The Fire Station at 676 Meacham is now vacant, and will soon be demolished to make way for the new fire station that will be constructed on the same site.

At the Village Board Meeting on Tuesday, February 13, 2018, the Elk Grove Village Firefighters Association, Local 2340, International Association of Firefighters, signed a five-year extension to their collective bargaining agreement with the Village of Elk Grove Village beginning May 1, 2019. The new agreement now solidifies hours, wages and working conditions through its expiration on April 30, 2024.

Both the Village an...d the Firefighters Union are pleased with the results of this extension agreement.

With the approval of this extension, the Village now has long-term contracts in place with both Fire and Public Works unions. The Public Works union is under a five-year contract ending in 2021—the longest term ever between the Village and the Public Works union. These long-term agreements are a result of the good working relationship the Village maintains with our local unions and they continue our long history of reaching agreements that are fair to both the taxpayers and the employees.

It is snowing again and expected to continue until around Noon. The Village has experienced several periods of snow banding, when snow falls at a much greater rate or intensity than some of the surrounding areas.

A small Village crew was activated at 1:30 AM Sunday to ensure that the Arterials and Secondary routes remained open for emergency response (See Arterial & Secondary routes: The full complement of Village staff an...d plows began a village wide plowing operation at 4 AM.

Typically for a snow event of this type with the expected snowfall of 3 to 6 inches it requires approximately eight hours to clear the streets after the snow stops. The plowing operation will likely require that plows revisit the areas plowed earlier in the day which will extend this operation into the afternoon.


Update from the storm event earlier this week:

The Village Crews were able to complete the Saturday Cleanup Phase earlier than expected and released the crews for some well-earned rest. The Village staff would like to express our gratitude for the many compliments and cooperation.

After being released from our plowing operations the crews still needed to return to their homes and often had to clear the own driveways, get some food and rest to return for the next operational period.

The dedication of the Village staff in the Fire, Police and Public Works Departments coupled with the cooperation and people helping their neighbors has made combating this long duration snow event a success and reinforced for everyone what makes Elk Grove Village the Exceptional Community!
