In order to further protect the health and safety of our residents and employees from the spread of COVID-19, the North Barrington Village Hall is now closed to the public. The Village encourages residents to conduct business by phone, mail or email when possible. In addition, residents can utilize the "Resident Dropoff" which is located outside the entry doors of Village Hall.
Open Burning & Controlled Burns
In an effort to assist residents with health issues during this time of home confinement and to limit additional strain on fire department resources, the Lake Zurich Rural Fire Protection District has passed a temporarily ban on open burning and controlled burns within their response area until the Governor's stay at home order is lifted. This ban does not include recreational fires in a fire pit on a patio or in a backyard as long as it isn’t creating a nuisance.
Remote attendance is being provided for upcoming Village meetings through Zoom. Please refer to the link, meeting ID and password provided in the meeting agenda.
Public comments may be submitted to the Village Administrator by 4:00pm the day of the meeting by phone at (847) 381-6000, ext.10, in writing, or by email to email@example.com. Please clearly indicate your name and address for the record.
Permits & Inspections
