Local Government

By Press release submission | Nov 16, 2019

Announcement1

Village of Park Forest issued the following announcement on Nov. 15.

Street sweeping begins Monday, Nov. 18, in Park Forest.

How Street Sweeping Works

The street sweeper normally begins in the north part of Park Forest and continues south. The number of streets cleaned each day depends on the amount of leaves and/or debris needing removal as well as contractor work force that day, and weather conditions.

On Tuesdays (garbage day), the sweeper will perform work on Village streets in multi-family areas. When the work is complete, the sweeper will resume work in single-family areas.

Hours

Street sweeping hours are from approximately 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Resident Cooperation

Residents are asked to remove their cars from the streets during the week of street sweeping in order for the most effective cleaning of the streets to take place. Residents should refer to the Village website, the government access cable channel, or tune in to Village board meetings for announcements on upcoming street sweeping dates.

Prohibited Actions

Residents are reminded that raking or blowing leaves, grass, or debris into the street is strictly prohibited by law. Leaves clog Village storm sewers resulting in flooded streets. Fines will be issued for any individual witnessed raking or blowing leaves, grass, or debris into the street.
