Village Ordinances and Resolutions
We are now approaching the time to prepare for the warmer weather. Our children are removing their winter jackets, pulling out their basketball hoops and planning to stay out later to enjoy their friends. Therefore, the Mayor and the Board of Trustees would like to remind our residents of a few ordinances.
Basketball hoops are not allowed in the streets. If you choose to use your own hoop, it must be placed on your private driveway.
New Curfew for all children under the age of 17 is as follows:
Sunday through Thursday 10:00 p.m.
Friday and Saturday 11:30 p.m.
The police will escort any children home under the age of 17 unaccompanied by his or her parent/guardian after curfew. If a child violates curfew more than once, his or her legal guardian will be issued a citation. Ordinances will be strictly enforced!
Please continue to work with OUR VILLAGE to keep it clean, safe and crime controlled. Thank you and have a safe summer.
Regular Board meetings are held on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Council Room of the Village Hall, 633 East 151st Street. All regular meetings are open to the public.
Hunting and Fishing License
The Village Clerk sells hunting and fishing license. The fee to purchase licenses is set by the Department of Conservation. The fees are posted in the Village Hall.
Garbage Pickup Day
Garbage is picked up every Tuesday. The only time this changes is, if the scavenger service observes a holiday that falls on Monday. In that case, our garbage will be picked up on Wednesday. The following holidays are observed by our scavenger service:
New Years Day
Independence Day (Fourth of July)
Every home is allowed to place out (1) one large item per week for pick up. Please adhere to this rule. These items consist of old furniture, mattresses, couches, etc. Items such as refrigerators, washers and dryers, hot water tanks, TV’s and microwaves can be placed out for scrap trucks to pick up. These individuals who scrap usually picked up these items early. Please do not place your garbage out for pickup before Monday evening. Citations will be issued for those citizens who disregard this requirement.
All citizens should have received a garbage totter, (large garbage can), which will hold large amounts of garbage. If you have not received a garbage totter, please contact the Village Hall at 708-331-2636.
Citizens are encouraged to dispose of tree limbs, branches and shrubbery by cutting them into lengths no longer than 4 feet, tying and bundling, and placing them out with your regular garbage. All residents are required to obtain a dumpster for disposing of construction material.
All contractors performing construction work in the Village are required to have a building permit. If the homeowner is performing work he/she too, must apply for a permit and let the building inspector make a decision as to whether a permit is required. Some contractors have had their licenses revoked by the State of Illinois due to complaints being filed with the Better Business Association. If the contractor has been issued a citation and is not allowed to work in the Sate of Illinois, the Attorney General files those complaints with the Village and therefore the Village can pass that information along to its citizens.
Dog License Required
Every dog owner who harbors or keeps a dog within the Village of Phoenix, is required to purchase a dog tag and show proof of rabies
inoculation. The fee to purchase a dog tag is $3.00, which is purchased from the Village Clerk’s Office.
