construction, assigning addresses and issuing
the following permits: Driveways, Patios and/or Sidewalks,
Parking Lots, Site Alteration, Floodplain Development,

Staff maintains official maps with regard to infrastructure as
well as enforcement of related Municipal Codes. Staff also
provides technical assistance to other Village Departments and
assists local businesses and Village residents in an advisory
capacity with engineering issues.
The Capital Projects and Design Division, a newly created
Division within Public Works, is responsible for the design and inspection
of most Village-sponsored infrastructure improvements including
street resurfacing, water main replacements, sanitary and storm
sewers, uniform fences and street light improvements. Inspection
