Lake in the Hills to hold public works open house

As part of National Public Works Week, the Lake in the Hills Public Works Open House will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 18. This event gives residents the opportunity to see what happens behind the scenes of maintaining the village’s infrastructure.

Staff members will be there to explain public works’ functions and answer questions. There will be interactive displays related to the public works streets, forestry, parks, storm water, fleet maintenance and airport operations. Vehicles and heavy equipment, such as snow plows, tractors and loaders, will be on display, and there will be tours of the onsite water treatment facility.

Bring the entire family to see the displays, get answers to your questions, and enjoy a complimentary hot dog lunch hot off the grill. The Public Works Department is located at
9010 Haligus Road, about one block south of the Miller and Haligus intersection.

The open house also overlaps with the annual shredding day for all Lake in the Hills residents. The village partnered with AMS Store and Shred of Lake in the Hills for this shred event that will take place at the Public Works Department from 9 a.m. until noon.

Residents can bring two copier paper-sized boxes of any paper documents that they would like shredded. AMS Store and Shred will be there to take those paper documents, which will be placed into 95 gallon totes, and then locked. After the event, AMS will take the locked totes back to their facility, which is located at 13 Prosper Court, and shred all the paper documents within the totes. This is a free service offered to Lake in the Hills residents.
