June 16, 2020 Update from the Mayor

There are now 127 confirmed COVID cases in Hickory Hills with 4 confirmed deaths.

Update from Public Works Director Sue Lehr

In the next two weeks, a City contractor will be applying a crack sealing pavement preservation treatment on selected streets. Crack sealing is exactly what it sounds like – filling cracks on city streets. Crack sealing is a cost-effective preventive maintenance procedure. This process is known to prolong the life of a street by preventing moisture from compromising the pavement.  Cracks allow water to penetrate into the pavement. When the water freezes, it expands and creates potholes and other damage. If you see a temporary “no parking” sign on your street, please obey for the good of the project.

Just a reminder for residents looking to slip on their walking/running shoes or riding your bicycle, the City’s Prairie Pond path is asphalt paved and eight-tenths (0.8) of a mile. Come out and enjoy the scenic surroundings located just East of 85th Street and 82nd Court. The decorative spray fountain has been installed and the path is illuminated for two hours in the evening.  Please assist us in keeping our pond water clean. Garbage cans are located at the entrances/exits.  Access to Prairie Pond path is via 84th Ct. and then east on 85th Street to the parking lot.  See image below.
