The village is pleased to announce that this year's Street Improvement Program will address over 2.5 miles of street repair this year. This program is funded by Motor Fuel Taxes received by the village from the State of Illinois. The MFT funds are distributed on a per capita basis. Pavement rehabilitation will consist of a combination of full depth pavement removal and replacement or grind and overlay.

The Lake County Health Department is working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to investigate the health impacts of an anhydrous ammonia spill that occurred in Beach Park, Illinois on the morning of April 25, 2019.

 CDC staff will begin door-to-door interviews on the morning of Saturday, May 11, 2019 at homes within a one-mile radius of the spill. Residents are encouraged to participate in the survey, if asked, to assist the CDC in their analysis and to help improve future incident response. The CDC will also interview first responders and those who were hospitalized during the incident. Read the full press release here.

Approximately 140 first-responders were deployed to an active hazardous materials incident at the intersection of Green Bay Road and 29th Street on April 25, 2019. The spill of anhydrous ammonia had a major impact on the people of Beach Park and surrounding communities. The village worked closely with the emergency responders to assure that our residents were notified as quickly as possible while the situation unfolded. Residents who are registered in the village emergency notification system received updates via direct phone call, e-mail or texts at 5:45 am, 8:55 am and 10:00 am. Click here to register for the village emergency notification system. These updates were also provided on the village social media sites at: Nextdoor, Twitter and Facebook.

The village appreciates the work of the Beach Park Fire Protection District, the Lake County Sheriff’s Department, police officers from nearly twenty area police departments, and all of the firefighters who risked their lives today to help others. This kind of cooperation is what makes this part of Lake County a wonderful place to live.

There are four Fire Protection Districts who respond to calls within the village limits, Beach Park, Newport, Winthrop Harbor and Warren-Waukegan. All four of these districts are separate governmental entities with their own governance structure, budgets, ability to tax and specific operations. The Village of Beach Park has no oversight or authority over any of these four Fire Protection Districts. Residents with questions regarding the proposed Fire Department consolidation between the Beach Park Fire Protection District and the City of Zion, should contact one of those entities directly.
