Tornadoes.. What's the difference between a Watch and a Warning?

It's Severe Weather Preparedness Week. Why not take a minute to make sure you know what to do in different types of situations?

We've had reports of a few car burglaries throughout the Village lately, so we'll be promoting the #9pmRoutine ...

Here's our weekly press release:

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family, friends, and colleagues of CPD District Commander Paul Bauer, who was fatally shot this afternoon at the Thompson Center.

Due to the heavy amounts of snow expected on February 9th, the Village's waste hauler (Groot) will not be collecting residential or commercial refuse/recycling on Friday, February 9th due to closure of the landfills. Friday pick-up will be moved to Saturday, February 10th. If you have questions, please contact Groot at 1-800-244-1977. Residents are encouraged not to place containers out during the storm in order to assist with snow removal efforts. Also, a friendly reminder to help a neighbor who may need assistance by clearing a sidewalk or driveway during the storm. Thank you for your attention to this important matter.

In January the Police Department became aware of new information regarding one of the clerks at the BP Gas Station, located at the corner of Rt. 176 and Rt. 21, possibly selling both “vaping” and tobacco products to minors in the area. Concerned by the possibility of minors having access to such products and the fact the gas station is located in such close proximity to Libertyville High School; Libertyville Police Department Detectives initiated an investigation into the allegations. Over the course of the next few weeks, the same clerk sold vape products to a minor on two occasions and tobacco products on one occasion. He was subsequently charged with the ordinance violations and has been assigned a court date in February (see attached press release).

Regardless of who you root for (or against) tonight, please be responsible. You don't want us calling a foul!
