Extreme Heat Warning Next Two Days…Please be safe

This Wednesday and Thursday are projected to be at or near 100 degrees.  Please be safe and limit outdoor activity.  If you or a neighbor are in need of access to air conditioning, please do not hesitate to contact city hall at 708/598-4800 or the police non-emergency phone number at 708/598-1313.  There are a number of municipal buildings, including our community center, located at 7800 W. 89th Place, that will be open to the public for those in need of air conditioning.   On a related note, there are some service providers, such as our waste hauler, LRS, that must work in the heat.   To protect its workers, LRS may start its collection a little earlier than normal so please consider placing your toters at the curb the night before or earlier than usual in the morning.
