Message from Mayor Hinshaw
I am very honored to serve you, your families and our businesses as the new mayor of Indian Head Park. I was sworn in with the new village board on May 14 and we have been busy ever since. We would like to thank the outgoing mayor and board for their hard work and past service. We look forward to the new village board making Indian Head Park an even better place to live, work, play and enjoy.
The past Village Administrator John Brooks resigned on May 13. The new board worked hard to identify candidates who could step in and help Indian Head Park in an interim capacity. The board interviewed three candidates and made a selection to get the best candidate in quickly to help us in this transition period.
We would like to introduce and welcome to our village the Interim Village Administrator, Art Osten Jr.!
Art will serve as interim village administrator for a three month period to oversee operations, manage outstanding projects, assist with the hiring of a permanent village administrator, and ensure a smooth transition. He has more than 30 years of municipal experience including serving as village administrator in a number of area communities. Art is enjoying Indian Head Park’s small town ambiance and working with our officials and staff. Please feel free to stop by and say hello or contact him about any village concerns.
In addition to assisting Art in the hiring of a new administrator, the village board will be working on the 2015-2016 budget, infrastructure issues, and much more. We have an open trustee position to fill and invited potential candidates to address the village at the June 11 village board meeting. The village board will select the new trustee who will start as soon as possible.
My office will be at the Public Works Building and Art will take the former mayor’s office at the village hall. Please let me know about any questions or concerns that you may have.
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.
