When will the Village pathways be plowed after it has snowed?

The contract the Village has with our snow plow company requires that the snow fall will be cleared from the Village pathways/sidewalks within 24 hours AFTER a snowfall is done.  Please understand that there are occasional times when the pathways get recovered with snow, after we have cleared the pathway, specifically on Half Day Road (Rte 22) and Waukegan Road (Rte 43). This is because the Illinois Department of Transportation will come and push additional snow back off their street (Rte 22 & Rte 43 are their streets) and back onto the pathways in order to make room for additional future snow fall.  The Village thanks you in advance for your patience as we do continue to try to make that pathway available for use as quickly as possible.

Where can I find the Village’s information about fees?

On September 25, 2017, the Village of Bannockburn approved a Comprehensive Fee Schedule to provide all of the fees in one consolidated location.  That document can be found by clicking here.
