It is Official!!!

The Burbank Police Department will be taking part in the Chicagoland U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program. The Burbank Police Department Located at 5650 W. 75th Place will serve as this area’s drop off site.

Toy Collection Rules & Regulations

All donated toys must be:
1)New and in original sealed packaging (no used toys)
2)No stuffed animals will be accepted (due to dust/allergy concerns)
3)All items donated must be unwrapped
4)No cash or monetary donations will be accepted (please visit the webpage below if you would prefer to do that)

While many already know how important this program is to those children who are less fortunate, there are still many who do not have any idea what the program actually is. I invite those to take a moment and visit the Toys for Tots Foundations webpage at www.toysfortots.org Our hopes in taking part are to bring some smiles to some of the less fortunate children on Christmas. With the community’s help, we can all accomplish this task.
The collection will go on from now until

December 21st, 2015.

Nicor Gas is reminding customers that representatives from our company always carry proper identification and never ask customers for cash or personal financial information.
With door-to-door scams, someone impersonating a utility worker will visit a customer's home looking to get personal information or account information, and sometimes attempting to get in their home.
Customers can avoid being scammed by taking a few precautions:
- Never provide social security or personal information to anyone initiating contact with you claiming to be a Nicor Gas representative or requesting you send money to another person or entity other than Nicor Gas.
- Always ask to see a company photo ID before allowing any utility worker in your home or business.
- When in doubt, check it out. Be skeptical of individuals wearing clothing with old or defaced company logos. If you have any doubts, ask to see a company ID. Residents can contact Nicor Gas Customer Care at 888-642-6748 (888-Nicor4U) to confirm that the person at their door is a Nicor Gas employee.
- Never make payment for services to anyone coming to the door.
Some of our customers in this area still have meters inside their basements; as such, access to the gas meter is done in the presence of an adult at the home. These gas meter reads are not necessarily done by appointment – Nicor Gas employees will walk a route and call on these customers as they walk these routes by knocking/ringing at their door.




Help Protect Basic Services and Quality of Life in Your Community
Visit www.ProtectMyTown.com and voice your position

The Illinois Legislature and Governor Rauner are considering taking local revenue to patch the state’s budget holes at the expense of Illinois’ cities and villages.

This local revenue funds basic services like police and fire protection, road repairs and maintenance, garbage collection, infrastructure projects, and snowplowing. If the state proposal becomes a reality, the City of Burbank would lose approximately $1,500,000.00 annually.

Our community is opposed to raising taxes or eliminating essential services or vital public works projects to make up for the lost revenue.

You Can Help:
     • Tell Springfield that they can’t fix their problem by shifting the burden onto local communities.
     • Visit www.ProtectMyTown.com to send a letter to your legislators and Governor Rauner urging them not to take our tax dollars.

The Burbank Police Department and the FTC

(Federal Trade Commission) want you to know:


Every year, thousands of people lose money to telephone scams — from a few dollars to their life savings. Scammers will say anything to cheat people out of money. Some seem very friendly — calling you by your first name, making small talk, and asking about your family. They may claim to work for a company you trust, or they may send mail or place ads to convince you to call them.

If you get a call from someone you don’t know who is trying to sell you something you hadn’t planned to buy, say "No thanks." And, if they pressure you about giving up personal information — like your credit card or Social Security number — it’s likely a scam. Hang up and report it to the Federal Trade Commission.

The Metropolitan Water Reclamation District (MWRD) held a public meeting on June 16, 2015 at Reavis High School. At that meeting, the MWRD presented a number of scenarios that they felt would address the problems with flooding in Burbank. Residents who attended the meeting were asked to vote on the various solutions they felt would offer the best alternative to reduce flooding throughout the City of Burbank.
Among the various alternatives was Alternative “E” which was voted to be the best solution to resolve flooding episodes throughout all of Burbank.
In essence, Alternative “E” called for the expansion of the Melvina Reservoir by razing 15 properties within the footprint of the reservoir. The expansion of the reservoir would add 195 acre-feet for additional rainwater water storage.
The MWRD will begin the process of property acquisition within the very near future. Concerned homeowners will be contacted by the MWRD or their agents and offered fair market values for their properties.
