With the arrival of Spring, Public Works has started alley service and grading, along with street patching. Forestry will begin stump removals and parkway restorations. Maintenance and equipment services will also be performed within all of the Village’s parks, playgrounds and tot lots.
Street sweeping has already begun, with the business and residential areas being swept every other week, weather permitting. Please take care to note parking restrictions on the signs at the end of each block to avoid parking violations.
The Public Works building side that faces Eberly Avenue will undergo a three-phase renovation, within the next twelve months. The building’s broken and old window panes will be replaced, and the grounds will be landscaped. A general clean up and maintenance of the property will also be done.
Public Works is also taking requests for the main sidewalk squares to be replaced on the Village’s Annual 50/50 Cost Shared Sidewalk Program.

The Beautification Committee has two service opportunities available for people of all ages.
Join us on Saturday, April 24th at 8:30am in the basement of Village Hall for our spring community cleanup day - Project N.I.C.E.
This spring we celebrate our 17th year of Project N.I.C.E. (Neighbors Involved in a Clean Environment) and our Governors Home Town Award win! T-shirts and refreshments provided (including children's sizes!).
To pre-register you, your family or your group please contact Jane Huber at 708-870-7715 or firstname.lastname@example.org
We also kick-off our 2010 Adopt-a-Spot program on March 20th at 9:30am. Volunteers should plan to meet in the courtroom of Village Hall to learn more about this invaluable service and to sign up to adopt an area of the village. This is a unique volunteer opportunity where you set your own schedule of clean up days throughout the year.
We will have photographs of each site available and a map of Brookfield so volunteers can pick their ideal location. Free t-shirts provided to all new volunteers.
