The Indian Head Park Police Department would like to inform our residents about recent residential burglaries that have been occurring in several nearby communities.

The passing of a dear friend.
We regret to inform our residents that Deputy Clerk/Administrative Assistant Kathy Leach passed away Wednesday morning December 17, 2014. Kathy began working for the Village in late 1992 and soon became an outstanding employee and good friend who will be greatly missed by all of us. Her expertise and historical memory of Village matters will be hard to replace. Many organizations have a “go to” person for special projects and requests. Kathy was that person for the Village’s administrative functions. Our sympathy and condolences go out to Kathy’s husband Mike and her family as they grieve for her. We will keep them and Kathy in our thoughts and prayers.
Rest in peace Kathy! We will miss you greatly!

Heritage Center Referendum
The results of the non-binding advisory referendum on the question: "Shall the Village of Indian Head Park sell the Village's Heritage Center" showed that 905 "Yes" and 576 "No" ballots were cast by Indian Head Park voters.
Justice has been served and the Village of Indian Head Park is forever grateful to the jurors for their swift and decisive verdict finding John Wilson guilty of murder. While nothing can ever bring Kelli back, she will always be in our hearts, and as a Community we are thankful this chapter is complete. Our thoughts and prayers of support are with the O’Laughlin family.
Richard S. Andrews, Mayor
Electric Aggregation Update (9/4/2014)
If you are a part of the Village’s electric aggregation program and have not opted out recently, you should I have received the second letter that I mentioned would be coming from ComEd dated August 25, 2014 informing you that your electric supplier will be Integrys Energy Services starting about October 8, 2014 (depends on you meter read date). This latest letter should allay your concerns about being switched back to ComEd for your electricity supplier. As previously mentioned, this letter would and did confirm that our residents in the aggregation program would begin receiving their electric supply from Integrys. As I have been told, the electricity supply changes this month (September) and you should see that reflected on your ComEd bill in October. If you have any questions about this, you may contact Integrys at (888) 802-2885.

ComEd Outage Alerts Program
ComEd’s Outage Alerts program allows participants to report outages via text messaging.
Subscribers can simply text the word “OUT” to 26633 (COMED) to report an outage at the location ComEd has associated with their cell phone number and they receive regular updates on the status of their outage until service is restored. Non-subscribers who text “OUT” to 26633 will be invited to subscribe to the Outage Alerts program. New subscribers will receive a confirmation text-message that they successfully subscribed, and will immediately be enrolled to receive notifications on their cell phones or pagers when an outage has been reported at their address.
To subscribe, customers will need either the ComEd account number, the account holder's social security number or the primary phone number on the account. Customers can also now enroll in the text message program thru the VRU using their account number, SSN or phone number.
Please note that ComEd does not charge customers for this notification, but their wireless carrier may have message and data fees.
