Public Services

Following one of the core values of the Village ("A fiscally accountable government is needed to protect the interests of Homer Glen taxpayers") Homer Glen has taken the approach of contracting with a number of public and private entities to provide many of the traditional municipal services:
  • Police services are provided through a contract with Will County Sheriff's Department.
  • All public works functions, including maintenance of 109 miles of streets, bridge maintenance, snowplowing, storm water drainage maintenance etc., are provided to the citizens of Homer Glen though a contract with the Homer Township Highway Department.
  • Fire and Emergency Services are provided by 4 separate Fire Protection Districts:
    • Fomer Fire Protection District
    • Mokena Fire Protection District
    • New Lenox Fire Protection District
    • Northwest Homer Fire Protection District
  • Water and Sanitary Sewer service is provided by Illinois American Water Company in those areas of the Village that can be served by water mains.
