A group of teachers and students led by Megan Pavelske from Zion-Benton Township High School, are part of a subcommittee of the Culture and Climate Initiative.  This initiative plans community activities for students, one that began last year is called Swarm It Forward.  One of the activities they recently participated in was the planting of spring flowers at each of the Village of Beach Park entrance signs.  The flowers were donated by VM Landscaping, and although the weather was a bit cooler than we had hoped, the students that participated did a fantastic job and we are grateful they chose Beach Park as a recipient of their selfless commitment to beautifying our community.

In the next few days, a North Shore Gas approved contractor from MZI will be upgrading meters in your area on behalf of North Shore Gas. The contractor will have a badge with both the MZI Group, Inc. and North Shore Gas logo. They are installing a transmitter device that will allow North Shore Gas to remotely read the gas meter every month and the install should take approximately 15 minutes to complete. In order to install the new device, they will need access to the meter. Customers do not have to be home or present for the work to be performed. However, as a courtesy, upon arrival the contractor will knock on the customer’s door to announce their arrival and leave a door hanger to notify when they are done.
