Winter Snow Removal Services Update
The Village of North Barrington is excited to announce it has entered a contract with Great Lakes Snow Systems, Inc. for the 2017-2019 snow seasons. Plowing will commence after approximately one inch of snow, and in heavier snows, roads will be cleared as needed until completion of snow event. Please be reminded there is no parking on the street during snow events. All plowed snow by private contractors MUST be pushed completely off of Village road surfaces or are subject to fine. During the winter months, please place all garbage and recycling containers on the driveway adjacent to the street. Please make sure your mailbox posts are secure and in good condition; mailboxes knocked over by the force of the snow will not be replaced, only if damaged by the snow plow. Snow related reports, requests or complaints should be directed to the Village Hall, 847-381-6000.
In 2004, the
Village entered into an Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) with the Road
District in to provide snow and ice control services, as well as other
maintenance services. The IGA was renewed in 2009, and again in 2013, and was
up for renewal this May. Higher costs for services, whether we had snow events
or not, made Village Officials look into other options in order to save
substantial taxpayer dollars. The Village is committed to finding fiscally responsible
solutions that respect taxpayer interests.
Tree removal, brush mowing and other services will continue in the
Village, using other providers.
