Storm Cleanup Status
On Sunday, July 23, the Village of Lisle experienced severe thunderstorms, heavy rain, lightning and high winds. These storms resulted in power outages and damage to trees and property. While there was sporadic damage throughout the Village, the hardest hit areas were the Oak View and Oak Hill residential subdivisions. Currently, all Lisle roads are open, but approximately 200 homes remain without power.
The Village’s Public Works crews have been working since Sunday assessing and trimming damaged parkway trees and clearing roads, sidewalks and parkways. This work is anticipated to take the rest of the week to finish. Crews will return at a later date to finish non-emergency trimming of damaged parkway trees.
Beginning Monday, July 31, the Village will conduct a free pickup for storm damaged branches. Please place branches that are 8 inches in diameter or less on the parkway by 7 a.m. with cut ends facing the street. Public Works crews will make one pass through the entire Village to collect stacked branches. Refer to the Branch Pickup Program for complete guidelines by clicking here. Once all branch debris has been removed, a Village-wide street cleaning will take place. Residents who have downed trees or damaged branches larger than 8 inches in diameter on private property need to contact a tree service for removal.
The ComEd Care Van is in the Park District Parking Lot located south of the Lisle Police Station (Route 53 and Short Street) and will be offering free electronic device charging service as well as the latest information about power outages on Monday, July 24 until 6:30 p.m.
Residents who have questions may contact the Village of Lisle Public Works Department at (630) 271-4180.
