April 16, 2019 Village Board Meeting

The April 16, 2019 Village Board meeting will be held at Wasco Elementary School, 4N782 School Road.

The Meeting begins at 7pm and will be held in the Community Room.


Kane County Road Resurfacing

Annual County Resurfacing program is scheduled to begin the week of Monday, April 15, 2019, weather permitting.

Construction work hours will be from 7:00 am until 5:00 pm Monday thru Friday requiring temporary daily lane closures and flaggers directing traffic for the safety of the workers and the travelling public.  

In the Village, Burlington Road from Route 64 to  Route 47 will undergo resurfacing and curb and gutter replacement


This work is anticipated to take approximately five months to complete, weather permitting.

Motorists should expect long delays while traveling through the work areas and should add additional time to their commutes. Motorists are asked to reduce their speed, watch for construction workers and vehicles entering or leaving the site, obey flaggers and comply with traffic control devices within the work zone. Motorists may want to consider
the use of alternate routes while this work is being completed.

A reminder – minimum fine for speeding in a work zone is $375.00 with or without workers present. It is illegal for drivers to talk on a cell phone while driving through a highway
construction work zone.

Any questions regarding the project, please call David Sitko at 630-313-0754
