Mayor Issues Warning to Citizens about Choosing Contractors

A Note From Mayor Phillips,

“As many contractors are coming out of the woodwork to get you to give them your business, I would like to strongly encourage you to do your homework, and check into those companies. Many scammers will say they are from the local area. Just because they say their local business owners doesn’t mean they really are. A good rule of thumb is to run the contractor by your insurance company to ensure they are legit and able to do the work for them. My staff and I want to look out for those in our Village and we are currently constructing a list of those companies that currently hold a solicitation permit for the Village. Also, keep in mind that just because they have a permit to solicit doesn’t make them a reparable company. If you have any question please feel free to call city hall at (217) 477-0800 and we will try to help you out.”

Respectfully
-Mayor David Phillips
