The Village has a network of more than 2,100 streetlights throughout the community to keep residential neighborhoods and businesses safe and illuminated.  The Public Works Department is responsible for the maintenance of 1,675 of these streetlights and the balance are owned and maintained by Commonwealth Edison (Com Ed). If you know of a streetlight outage, please contact us at 847-599-6800 or report online via the Comments Form so that we can schedule the repair or notify Com Ed. We will attempt to respond to outages within 72 hours of the initial call. Depending on the reason for the outage, some lights may require more extensive work and a longer time for repairs.

Currently, the capability and reliability of new lighting technologies such as L.E.D. and Induction Lighting are being tested. Fixtures have been installed in both the public and employee parking lots at Village Hall and an L.E.D. fixture has been in place in the Tri-State Parkway Industrial Park on Lakeside Drive since 2007.
