October 4, 2022 Update from the Mayor

Congratulations to New Hickory Hills Police Chief Jason Bray

Chief Charles Hobart recently announced his retirement.  On behalf of the entire City Council I wish to thank Chief Hobart for his decades of dedicated service to our community and for serving as Chief over the last 4 years.  We recognized Charles at our last city council meeting, and we wish Charles all the best in his future endeavors.    

The city council recently approved promoting Hickory Hills Lieutenant Jason Bray to be the City’s next police chief.  Jason is a Purdue graduate who has served in our police department since 1997.  His training, certifications and awards over the years are extensive and certainly made him an obvious choice to lead the department.  I have every confidence that Jason will continue to serve our city with distinction as he leads our great team of law enforcement professionals.  Chief Bray’s swearing in ceremony will be at the Thursday, October 13 City Council meeting which begins at 7:30 p.m.

Farmer’s Market Continues This Friday

Even though summer is over, the Hills Chamber’s wonderful Farmer’s Market continues through October 14.  The vendors have some wonderful fall products that you are sure to enjoy.


Congratulations to Hickory Hills Resident Jessica Scialo!

Cardinal Cupich and the Chicago Archdiocese recently announced that long time St. Patricia parishioner, Jessica Scialo, was selected to receive the Christifideles Award.  This honor is given to the lay person in each parish that demonstrates faithfulness and dedication to ministry.  Over the years, Jessica has been a volunteer school receptionist and play director.  On top of that, Jessica and other parent volunteers make each play costume!  Jessica will be officially recognized for this honor at a ceremony at Holy Name Cathedral.
