Bureau County Educational Forum
Residents in the Village of Ladd are encouraged to attend a public forum on Wednesday, February 21, 2018 at 6:30pm in the Community Room at Spring Valley City Hall. The presentation will provide educational information about making renovations to the former Bureau County Republican building in Princeton in order to provide for a Law Enforcement Center to replace the current outdated Bureau County Jail. To fund the renovation, proposed is a 1/2 percent increase to the sales tax, or $.50 cents per $100 spent for use or consumption. The sales tax increase will apply to food that is prepared and on tangible personal property bought at retail. This request will be placed in front of Bureau County residents during early voting and then on Tuesday, March 20th during the primary election. For more information, contact Bureau County at (815) 876-3555.

Sewer Backup Reporting
The Village of Ladd is in the process of implementing a CMOM (Capacity, Management, Operations, and Maintenance) Plan for the Sanitary Sewer Collection System. In order to improve the ability to identify where basement backups and overflows occur, a system of record keeping will be implemented. For each complaint or notification received by the Village concerning a sanitary sewer overflow or a basement backup with the potential of being caused by issues with the Village’s collection system, a report will be generated. A form has been created for the purpose of keeping these records. Residents are encouraged to print, complete and submit the form to the Village Clerk’s office when they experience a sewer backup event. Forms are also available in the Village Clerk’s office. For more information, contact Superintendent Doug Englehaupt @ (815) 894-2806.
