[ARCHIVED] Flood Incident Community Meeting May 22

Village of Westmont
Date Issued: April 29, 2013

The Village of Westmont is planning a community meeting regarding the recent severe weather incident and resulting flood issues for Wednesday, May 22, 7 p.m. at the Village Hall, 31 W. Quincy. The meeting has been scheduled for that date so there is time to gather information from local, State and Federal resources that will then be shared with Westmont residents and property owners.

“The extreme weather and flooding incident that occurred on April 19 affected much of northeast Illinois,” says Village Manager Ron Searl. “More than 40 Counties have been declared disaster areas by the State. Currently, we have no specific information regarding the possibility of relief aid coming to this area, but we will publicize updates as they become available. Residents are strongly encouraged to document their damage thoroughly and report their claims to their personal insurance providers.”

Representatives from the County, local sanitary districts, and ComEd will be invited to talk about the incident and the response. Village staff including Fire, EMA, Police and Public Works will also present information regarding the flood response effort. Information regarding relief aid will also be presented. The meeting will also include time for resident feedback so that additional information and data can be collected and addressed.

“We want to thank all of the community volunteers and staff for their excellent teamwork and professionalism in responding to this situation,” says Police Chief To Mulhearn. “In addition to our immediate flood-response effort, we mobilized more than 30 volunteers to assist with distributing important flood-related information throughout the entire community. We thank everyone for rising to the challenge in our effort to serve our citizens.”

Additional flood-response information will be posted as it becomes available. Please refer to the Village Website or the Cable TV Government Channel, Comcast Ch. 6 or AT&T U-verse Ch. 99.
