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.

Great!! What is it?  Find out by downloading it here! A Popular Annual Financial Report, or PAFR, is a document that is intended to convey the financial results of the Village’s operations those that do not necessarily have a background in public finance. The document is derived from Beach Park's Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR), and graphics and other visuals to augment the financial message, and should not be overwhelmingly technical in nature. These requirements are sometimes contrary to traditional financial reporting.

We understand the importance of being accountable for the proper management of public funds and are pleased to present the Village’s Popular Annual Financial Report (PAFR) for the year ended April 30, 2018. The report provides a brief analysis of the Village’s fiscal operations and showcases the Village’s various programs and projects. The PAFR is an example of the Village’s commitment to improve communication with our stakeholders and increase transparency and public confidence in the government body of the Village of Beach Park.
