Village's Emergency Plan Gets Update

Thursday, September 13, 2012

At the urging of Mayor Hap Gilbert in 2005, the Village reviewed its emergency operation plan with a more comprehensive approach that involved specific community members. Trustees recently approved an update to that plan which Village Administrator Mike Miller had targeted as a priority item soon after his June arrival as new administrator. The plan had not been updated in some time.

The 2012 updated plan includes new flood plain and Village maps and up- dated names and contact information to reflect changes in the Village’s adminis- trative staff. A complete copy of the plan is available at Village Hall. A notable addition to the plan in 2009 was Village membership in the Il- linois Public Works Mutual Aid Network (IPWMAN), and the enactment of an ordinance based on an intergovernmental agreement to secure mutual aid assistance during a disaster or emergency.

Public Works Director Larry Coloni was instrumental in introducing IPW- MAN to the Village with assistance from members of the former Public Works Advisory Committee.
