Trick or treat

Participating homeowners are encouraged to leave an outside light on to let children know they are welcome to visit.  Motorists - please drive carefully and observe the rules of the road.

Remember that this is a day of fun. Damaging property is a crime and the police will be called if damage to property occurs. 


Follow these easy tips to keep children safe:

  • Always go trick or treating accompanied by an adult.

  • Stick to the designated trick or treat time and area.

  • Plan a safe route so you know where your children are at all times. Set a time for their return home. If your child goes out with just friends, make sure he or she has a cell phone.

  • Stay together as a group if going out without an adult. Be sure to let your parents know who you are with and where you are going.

  • Stay in well-lit, populated areas and do not wander off by yourself.

  • Do not eat any treats until they can be examined at home by an adult.

  • Never enter a home, back or side yard of a stranger or get into a stranger’s car. Call 911 or go to a neighbor’s house for help.

  • Carry a flashlight, glow stick or have reflective tape on costumes to make them more visible to cars.

  • Avoid masks, they can limit vision; use make-up if you can. If they must wear a mask, make sure they have clear vision and remove the mask when crossing the street.


FIND SEX OFFENDER LOCATIONS
BEFORE YOU TRICK-OR-TREAT

According to the Illinois State Police Sex Offenders list, there are 488 registered sex offenders in Kane County, IL.

As Halloween approaches, parents want to make sure their children are safe. Many have a habit of checking the information and maps that now are available online to find out the addresses of registered sex offenders in order to avoid trick-or-treating at those locations.

Pumpkins

DON’T LET YOUR WASTE HAUNT YOU:
RECYCLE YOUR JACK-O’-LANTERN

Kane County will offer its first-ever pumpkin-recycling event this year to help reduce waste.


“Jack-o’-lanterns, pumpkins and decorative squashes are highly compostable,” Kane County Recycling Coordinator Jennifer Jarland said. “And it is a real shame to just send them to a landfill, when the nutrients they contain could instead be returned to soil that will grow more healthy food!”

Jack-O’-Lantern Recycling Event
  • When: 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Nov. 5
  • Where: Pushing the Envelope Farm, 1700 Averill Road in Geneva.
  • What: Kane County will be accepting pumpkins and squashes for composting right on a farm! It is very important to keep it contaminant-free; just like food scrap composting.
  • Cost: Free to residents of Kane County.
What’s not recycled? Anything attached to or inside the Jack-o’-lantern — candles, yarn hair, stickers, googly eyes, plastic ears or plastic of any kind — cannot be recycled. Only the jack-o’-lanterns themselves can be composted! Click here for more information.

Kane County Department of Transportation

October Update


Assistant Director of Transportation Steve Coffinbargar said good progress has been made in the past month over a number of important upgrades and improvements, ranging from Longmeadow Parkway to Kane County’s first roundabout to the Hampshire Creek Bridge replacement.

Burlington Road will continue to be closed to traffic between Dittman Road and Plato Road
due to a delay in roadway lighting materials. The intersection improvement includes construction of a new roundabout.  Please click here for additional information on the Rounabout. Construction work hours will be from 7:00 am till 5:00 pm Monday thru Saturday through the end of November 2016, weather permitting.

Kane County is also seeking your input on transportation priorities throughout Kane County as part of its 2040 Long-Range Transportation Plan. You can weigh in by taking an interactive, mobile-friendly online survey. Click here for more information and take their transportation survey.
