Press Release
October 10, 2014


The Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago is planning to excavate over 5,000 cubic yards of sediment/soil material from the Melvina Ditch Reservoir located on 87th Street in Burbank. This project will provide millions of gallons of additional storm water storage and aid in reducing local flooding. The project will involve re-grading the bottom of the reservoir and offsite disposal of the spoil material. After the material is removed, the disturbed area will be stabilized with a grass blanket. During removal of the spoil material, trucks will be entering and exiting the reservoir from 87th Street for hauling, with an estimated 500 truckloads needed to remove the excavated soil. A traffic control plan is being prepared with assistance from the Cook County Department of Transportation and Highways and extended work-hours (dawn to dusk, including weekends) will be employed to remove this material as quickly as possible. The District is currently performing testing on the material to be removed and will proceed with the work once proper disposal procedures are defined.

In addition, the District is working to develop plans for expanding the Melvina Ditch Reservoir. System-wide improvements, throughout the Melvina Ditch watershed, will also be evaluated for long-term flooding solutions in Burbank and neighboring communities.


* * FLOOD ASSISTANCE UPDATE * *


On October 6, 2014, the City of Burbank was notified by the Cook County Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (DHSEM) of the following with regard to the flood on August 22, 2014: “We did not sustain enough damages throughout the entire County to declare a disaster and request financial assistance through either the Public Assistance (PA) or Individual Assistance (IA) program.”
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) uses a formula to calculate losses and it determined that aggregate losses did not meet the threshold requirements. Burbank, however, will continue to seek other avenues to try and bring some degree of financial relief to flood victims.


NOTICE UPDATE:
This is a formal public announcement that on August 25, 2014, installation of the red light safety enforcement camera systems began.

Construction on this project was completed September 3, 2014. Please be advised that our “Go Live” date is September 27, 2014 and that any violation of the Burbank City Ordinance regarding Automated Traffic Law Enforcement Systems will be ticketed.

The locations are as follows:

  • Southbound Cicero Ave at 87th Street.

  • Southbound Cicero Ave at 79th Street.

  • Eastbound 79th Street at Cicero Ave.

Announcement from the Commonwealth Edison Company:

The City of Burbank is proud to work in conjunction with the Commonwealth Edison Company to bring information to the citizens of Burbank faster.

Below are two new ComEd Customer Communication tools. These are both wonderful new communication tools for our residents!

The first is an outage map that all residents can access on the the Commonwealth Edison Company website. This is a much improved outage map that gives specific information and outage locations.

The second is a I-Phone app. You must have a smart phone or I-phone for this application.

We at the City of Burbank are living up to the standard of Citizens and Government working together for the future.
