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.
  • Fire and Emergency Services are provided by 4 separate Fire Protection Districts:
    • Homer Fire Protection District
    • Mokena Fire Protection District
    • New Lenox Fire Protection District
    • Northwest Homer Fire Protection District
  • Roads, Road Signs, Drainage  Systems, Sidewalks and Trees that are in the Road Right-of-Way within the Village of Homer Glen are maintained by the Homer Township Road District. This relationship is governed by an Intergovernmental Agreement originally agreed to by both parties in 2001 and revised in 2003.  The Agreement authorizes the Road District to manage maintenance of the Village Roads in the same manner as it did prior to the Incorporation of Homer Glen. The IGA is an annual agreement that automatically renews on each anniversary date. 
  • 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.
