November 20, 2019 Board Meeting Update
The Village Board voted to start the interviewing process for Accounting and Administration Clerk (part-time) and Village Administrator (full time) positions. The Village is currently accepting resumes for both positions.
The Village also initiated the tax levy process through the passage of a resolution estimating the tax levy for the 2019 tax year to reflect an increase of $12,883. This is based on the new CPI (Consumer Price Index) of 1.9%. With an estimated 1169 total households, this would amount to an average of approximately $11.00 per household, but will fluctuate based on each individual property's assessed value.
Please free to contact President Eleanor Sweet McDonnell with any questions at email: firstname.lastname@example.org or Village phone: 847-381-6000 Ext. 12.
Village Snow Operations
Mac’s Property Management will be performing snow removal services on behalf of the Village this season. When the snow begins to fall, or icy conditions are present, the Village wants you to know that Mac’s is ready. They will put their snow and ice removal operation into motion to have you on your way as quickly and safely as possible.
As is standard with municipal snow operations, plowing will begin with the clearing of main arteries or primary streets in order to speed response time for emergency vehicles. Once these roadways are passable, they will move on to clear secondary and residential streets. Due to the limited traffic on cul-de-sacs roadways, these are often cleared after secondary streets.
If you have any questions regarding the snowplowing program, please feel free to contact North Barrington Village Hall at (847) 381-6000 or Mac’s Property Management directly at (847) 487-9400.
Reports of damage related to snow plow operations should be directed North Barrington Village Hall at (847) 381-6000. Damage in the right of way will be logged, with repairs to be conducted in the spring.
It should be noted that the most common reports of damage the Village receives during the snow season relate to mailboxes. Homeowners are responsible for making sure their mailboxes and/or posts can withstand the weight of the snow cleared by the plows. The Village will accept reports for damage related to a mailbox directly hit by a snowplow blade or some portion of the plow truck.
Clover Hill Road Closure
Closed to north bound traffic from west of the Kohls entrance
The closure is west of the entrance to the commercial area (Kohls, etc.) This restriction applies to all motorists, any motorist attempting to go around the barriers will be ticketed (resulting in a minimum of $120 for the citation). See the attached diagram for more detailed information.
For several years the Village has experienced an increase of northbound cut-through traffic on Clover Hill Lane from Rand Road to Miller Road due to the poor progression and capacity of the intersection of Rand Road at Miller Road. The increased cut through traffic has created a public safety concern for the residents along Clover Hill Lane for both vehicular and pedestrian traffic.
