NEW STUDENT REGISTRATION

Parents must provide proof of residency in the Ladd school district. This can be established by submitting mortgage/lease papers or a tax bill and two of the following items: a driver’s license, vehicle registration, voter registration, a utility bill, or an insurance premium receipt. Registration packets for students returning for the 2019/20 year are due now.
The 2019 Ladd Farmer’s Market has returned to War Memorial Park! The Market is held from 4:00 pm to 6:30 pm each Monday thru September (if produce is available).

TAPS ON MAIN STREET
At the 11th hour on the 11th day of each month, Taps are played over our Main Street speakers as a reminder to all citizens of the sacrifices that our servicemen and servicewomen have made for our freedom.
Story Time will be held at the Ladd Public Library each Tuesday from 10:30 am – 11:15 am. Cheri Linnig leads the program which consists of stories, a craft, and a snack. Preschool children ages 2-5 who are accompanied by an adult are welcome to attend.
Weather permitting, mosquito spraying will be done at dusk in the evening on an as-needed basis. Due to the quiet operation of the Village’s new machine, residents may not be aware when crews are spraying.
WATER RATE INCREASE
Water customers in the Village of Ladd will see a substantial rate increase on their June utility bills. This billing will reflect water charges for consumption in May. The increase was necessary to apply for a Community Development Block Grant and an IEPA loan to replace a severely deteriorated water main located in the Main Street alley on the east side of town. This includes the entire length of the main from Cleveland Street north to the railroad track. Our engineers have estimated the project cost to be $1,239,446.00.
