Police Lights

Could Halloween Cost You $18,000?

Actually, it could cost even more - if you are arrested for drunk driving. You may also need to find others to drive you around for an entire year if your license is revoked.  Lisle Police will be conducting a "Halloween Drive Sober" campaign to keep everyone safe. Remember, children will be wearing costumes that could reduce their vision and could step out into traffic while racing from home to home. Use extra caution and be alert when driving on Halloween and throughout the year. Click here to learn more. 


Pumpkin Composting Event

The Village of Lisle will be collecting pumpkins for composting on Saturday, November 4, 2017 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Garfield Avenue Parking Lot (just west of Main Street) in Downtown Lisle. Pumpkins are full of nutrients that are good for the soil and are 90% water. As most of the pumpkins processed in the U.S. are grown in Illinois, composting pumpkins here helps keep the water and nutrients local. Clean pumpkins and remove any candles, yarn, stickers, or other decorations.
