Be Aware of Scam Tactics
Residents reminded to be aware about scam tactics. With Spring approaching, residents are being advised to be on the lookout for scam artists posing as contractors. Some of the warning signs that you need to be aware of are:
• People soliciting door to door. Professionals do not do this.
• Claim to be working in your neighborhood and noticed that you need repairs
• Offer a free inspection which always turns up with a major repair
• Tell you that you need to act right away
• Tell you that they have left over materials from another job that you could use
• Want to be paid in cash
• Do not provide a detailed contract
• Ask for a large down payment
Make sure that anyone doing work for you is registered with the Village and has pulled all necessary permits. The Building Department is here to help please call us at 708.671.3730 to verify if a contractor is registered with the Village

Lawn Sprinkling Restrictions
So as to comply with Illinois Department of Natural Resources’ Lake Michigan Water Allocation Rules and Regulations lawn sprinkling is restricted May 15th through September 15th of every year as follows:
Manual sprinkling or manual use of an irrigation system; it shall be unlawful for any person, contractor, firm, or corporation to use Lake Michigan water for the sprinkling or irrigation of lawns or gardens (“outdoor watering”) on any day of the week, except between 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. or 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. on an odd/even basis, using the last digit of the property address and the calendar date. Odd addresses are prohibited from outdoor watering on both the 31st day and on the 1st day of the next month, thus watering on consecutive days.

The Village of Palos Park is a charming bedroom community nestled in the midst of dense wooded land. A wonderful place to live and raise a family in a natural environment. We love this town for its profound natural features, where hills, creeks, and ravines abound. Large, aged oak trees line our streets and properties. Our one-acre zoning in residential areas has been vital in maintaining these natural assets, and the community members actively work to maintain our “pastoral setting, rural splendor.”
We are here to help!
Village of Palos Park works to keep its residents informed, businesses connected and village offices and services running smoothly while providing services and activities for everyone. Explore the many ways information is shared:
