CROSS CONNECTION CONTROL SURVEY
Ladd water customers received a Cross Connection Control survey with last month’s utility bill (surveys were sent only to property owners and not to renters). This is a bi-annual IEPA survey and we are mandated to have full compliance from all customers. There are two options: to complete the paper survey and return it to the Village Clerk’s office or to complete and submit online. The paper survey for residential customers can be found here and the paper survey for commercial users can be found here. The online survey can be completed and submitted here. If you need assistance with the survey, call the Village Clerk’s office at (815) 894-2440 or Joe Glynn at T.E.S.T. Inc. (815) 252-9626. Failure to return a survey by the end of December will result in a $50 penalty.
CHRISTMAS EVE MASS
Father Ronald Margherio will celebrate Christmas Eve Mass at 3:30 pm on Tuesday, December 24th in Ladd’s Community Center. He has requested that those who attend Mass to bring the Christ Child from their indoor or outdoor nativity sets. It doesn’t matter if they are large or small, they will be returned. He plans to use them for the homily. The public is invited to attend.
TAPS ON MAIN STREET
At the 11th hour on the 11th day of each month, Taps is 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.
