The Village of Algonquin, IL

Welcome to the website for the Village of Algonquin!

Snow and Ice Control

In the winter months, the General Services Streets and Rights of Way team oversees all aspects of snow removal and management. With the assistance of all Public Works teams, snow is removed from Village streets, parking areas, select bike paths, and all sidewalks adjoining Village property. Each lane of a Village street requires several snow plow passes to clear, depending on the width and type of road, and intensity of the storm. Copies of the current Snow and Ice Control Plan can be found online.

Report Concerns

You may report snow and ice control concerns online using Algonquin Fix It! Your report is sent directly to our snow plowing operations team in the field and is the best way to communicate with us during and after the snow event.

Snow Removal Mailbox Damage

Please report suspected snow plow damage to your mailbox online using Algonquin Fix It! or by calling the Public Works at 847-658-2754. If there is evidence that the plow made physical contact with the mailbox, you will be sent a letter with options for repair and replacement. If required, a temporary mailbox will be provided.

If there is no evidence of physical contact by the plow, and the force of the snow caused damage to the mailbox, the permanent repair is the responsibility of the homeowner.  If required, a temporary mailbox will be provided.  This temporary mailbox must be returned to the Public Works prior to May 1.
