Property Maintenance/Zoning Enforcement Officer

 Property maintenance standards have been & will continue to be a priority of the village. The villages zoning enforcement/property maintenance officer is onsite weekly to help as needed. He will make sure to properly identify himself at all times when visiting any property(s), but know he will be making drives throughout the community on a regular basis. He will be doing what has been instructed of him by the village board. These topics are always openly discussed in our meetings if you should have interest. It’s been heard loud & clear by many, many residents what they want to see, “things to be cleaned up!!”. Enforcement officers will be utilizing and referring to the Village Of Big Rock “Property Maintenance Code” and doing compliance checks accordingly. Please let us know if you have any questions/concerns.

Village Policing 

The Village has heard and witnessed firsthand for many years traffic that comes through our small town driving at speeds well above our posted speed limits. As a result the village entered into an agreement with Kane County to police our community paying special attention to speeding. A Kane County officer will randomly be patrolling within Big Rock during high traffic times paying special attention to violators on Rte 30, Rhodes Rd, Jericho Rd. and Granart Rd. The village hopes that with more police presence/enforcement that this will slow people down and make our community roads safer to be on.

Municipal Customers

RE: COVID-19 Update

Dear Valued Customers,

In order to protect the health and welfare of our employees along with keeping our customers and public safe, effective March 23, 2020 we are temporarily making the following collection changes until further notice.

All trash/refuse and recycling must be placed in a company designated cart, a can with handles, or bagged. Loose uncontained items will not be collected. More specifically:

– All bulky item/construction debris collection is suspended until further notice.

– All white good/e-waste collection is suspended until further notice.

At this time, yard waste and recycling service is unaffected by the changes; however, we do anticipate potential changes to yard waste and recycling programs also.

We will continue practicing the protocols and recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Again, these are temporary changes made in the effort to keep your community and our employees safe. We will update you as soon as anything changes moving forward.

Regards,

Groot Industries

Electric Service for the Big Rock

We have just signed the electric agreement for the next year. you should see a change in your bill to the new supplier. They will not contact you by phone or door to door. 

Municipal Electrical Aggregation 

The village has elected to enroll its residents in electricity savings programs for several years now. As the contracts have expired the village has worked closely with Progressive Energy whom seeks out the best electricity rates for several of our local municipalities. The current provider of energy offered to village residents is Constellation Energy through 10/19/2019. Recently you may have received important information on the upcoming electric provider chosen by the village which is AEP Energy. This contract will be good through October 2020 for our residents. The village hopes that residents will continue to utilize and enjoy the cost savings through municipal contracts like these. It’s a no-strings attached savings program that truly is designed to help our residents save a little $$$.
