Congratulations are in order for a Walthill Resident who was approved for housing rehabilitation funds up to the amount of $25,000.00 for their home at last night's board meeting!
This money is through the Owner Occupied Rehabilitation (OOR) grant the Village was awarded in 2017.
This could be YOU being awarded up to $25,000.00 for YOUR own home....
Stop in at the Walthill Village Office to pick up an interest sheet and ask any questions you may have about this grant.
Please keep in mind, you need to be a Walthill resident, own your home (can't be a mobile home), have property insurance along with being current with your mortgage and back taxes.

Please take advantage of this opportunity to have your application questions answered!
If you’re out on the road during snowy conditions, it’s safer for you and other drivers if you turn your headlights on - you may have to do this manually in case your automatic lights don’t come on. This allows you to be seen by other drivers while also allowing you to see them if their headlights are on, too - plays a part in preventing accidents!
Friendly Reminder -
Sealed bids for the sale of the 409 Mathewson House need to be turned in to the Walthill Village Office by 12:00 p.m. TODAY
Received sealed bids will be opened at the February 7, 2018 board meeting where the Village Board of Trustees will choose a bid.
Extensions for the past due balance of the January 2018 utility bill are due Friday, February 2nd by 4:30 p.m.
Disconnections will take place on Monday, February 5, 2018.
Village Maintenance Crew are trying to get the streets cleared of snow as soon as possible - a huge thank you to them for the work they’ve been doing today.
If you are without power, please call the Office so we can notify the Maintenance Crew. They will work as quickly as possible to get your electricity turned back on, however, with the snow/ice and fallen tree limbs, it’s taking a little more time - please be patient and sorry for any inconvenience!
Due to the incoming weather, the Village Office will be closed tomorrow, Monday January 22, 2018.
Any emergencies, please call (402) 846-5685.
Please park vehicles off streets so they can be cleared. Any vehicle left on the street will be towed!...
Stay safe and keep warm everyone!
To help alleviate sewer backups in your home and your neighbors’ home, there are two things you can start doing instead of pouring the cooking grease down the kitchen sink:
(1) Let the cooking grease solidify and dump into trash can
(2) Pour grease into an empty glass jar (like an old spaghetti sauce jar) and put the lid on it. Let it cool before placing it somewhere in the kitchen such as underneath the kitchen. The jar can be used over and over until full, which can then be thrown away.
Most fat that is poured down the drains is in liquid form, but when it hits the cold pipes underground the grease hardens on the walls of sewer lines. A popula...r myth is that running hot water down the drain will prevent this from occurring, but the ground surrounding the pipe keeps it cool, allowing the fat to cling to the walls of the pipe. Over a period of weeks or months the fat will harden in the pipes, eventually causing the pipe to become completely blocked. Sometimes these blockages can cause sewage to back up into your home or your neighbor’s home causing hazard and inconvenience to the inhabitants. Instead of pouring fats down the drain, allow to cool and solidify, then scrape it out and dispose of it in your household trash.
