Newspapers covering Hoffman Estates:
Public Works Open House
The Village of Hoffman Estates Department of Public Works will host a free Open House on Saturday, Nov. 8, from 10 a.m. to noon at the Susan H. Kenley-Rupnow Public Works Center, 2305 Pembroke Avenue.
Tour the facility, and get a close-up view of equipment. An arborist will be available to address tree concerns, and answer questions about the Emerald Ash Borer. Personnel will also be available to answer questions regarding the Village’s water and sewer system. Kids in attendance can receive a personalized sign from the Village sign shop. Other activities include an opportunity to take a ride in a real snow plow truck and a climbing wall (weather-permitting.) Each child will also receive one entry for a chance to ride on a Public Works vehicle in next year’s Fourth of July parade.
Help “Load the Loader” by bringing a donation of nonperishable canned goods to help replenish area township food pantries. All donations will receive an additional door prize entry. For adults, this entry will be for a rain barrel container that collects and stores rainwater from downspouts and rooftops for future use watering lawns and gardens.
School groups, scout groups and other children, accompanied by an adult are welcome. Light refreshments will be served. For more information, call the Public Works Department at 847-490-6800.
