INTRODUCTION

    Our goal is to eliminate blight, improve the appearance of business and residential areas and create a community where all those who live, work or visit can experience a sense of pride and well being. While the goals of the Code Enforcement Officers may sound simple, your cooperation is needed to make them a reality.

    To protect the residential atmosphere of your neighborhood as well as prevent unsafe and unsightly use of property the City of West Chicago has adopted municipal codes to
achieve the quality of life everyone wants to enjoy. Please take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with some of the codes.

PROPERTY MAINTENANCE

    All houses, fences, garages, and other buildings must be maintained in a clean, safe and sanitary condition. The owner of the property is responsible for keeping the premises up to code. Renters must continue to keep it clean and sanitary while they live there.

SNOW REMOVAL POLICY

With winter upon us once again, it is time to review our snow removal policy.  The City is divided into six plow routes to enable us to have at least one truck working in all areas of town.  Each route contains primary roads and secondary roads. Primary roads are arterial streets which keep traffic flowing in and out of the City, and are the first streets salted and plowed. Secondary roads are those which have less traffic flow, generally side streets, and are salted and plowed upon completion of primary roads.
    During heavier snowfalls, it is possible that side streets may not be plowed until after the snowfall stops; Every effort is made to at least make side streets passable until the truck has
time to properly plow the street.

Residents should be aware of the following City policies:
