Village Hall to Close Thursday for Renovations
The Village of Lemont will be closed for business as employees move their offices to Central School on Thursday and Friday. They will re-open in their temporary location Monday, July 2.
Village Hall will be closed Thursday and Friday as village employees prepare to relocate for five months during renovations.
Beginning Monday, July 2, the village will operate out of the currently vacant Central School, 410 McCarthy Road. Their offices are expected to remain there until shortly after Thanksgiving.
In November 2011, village officials agreed to move forward this summer with necessary maintenance to Village Hall and the adjoining former police station, 418 Main St.
The building, constructed in the late 1890s, was last renovated in 1991. Although a recent assessment showed no major issues with plumbing, HVAC, roofing or overall structure, deferred maintenance could cost the village hundreds of thousands of dollars in the next three to five years, village officials said.
The current renovation plan calls for improvements to the lobby, roof, windows and exterior doors, bathrooms and conference room—creating the need for temporary office space.
In May, the village reached an intergovernmental agreement with Lemont-Bromberek Combined School District 113A to use Central School through Nov. 30.
All Village Hall services will continue to be offered, and all phone numbers will remain the same.
Beginning next month, all village board, committee of the whole, and planning and zoning commission meetings will be held in the large training room at the Lemont Police Department, 14600 127th St. Commission meetings will be held in the police station's small conference room.
Any questions regarding the renovation or meeting schedules should be directed to 630-257-1590 or email@example.com.
