The village book for ordinances has been updated on the website. It can be found here.
The Jerome Police would like to get the word out to the residents of Jerome to please lock your vehicle doors. Also, do not leave the keys or key fobs in the vehicle. In the past few nights, we have had a car stolen on South Lincoln Avenue and several cars entered along West Grand Court and Fillmore Street. All of the vehicles entered or burglarized in Jerome have been left unlocked. Subjects will walk the village at all hours of the night going from car to car looking for valuable items and money. If the car door is locked, they just go to the next one until they find an unlocked door. We have found there are several groups doing this in and around Springfield, Jerome, Southern View, and Leland Grove. If you see somebody walking in your area that looks suspicious to you please call the non-emergency number 217-753-6666.
On your water bills for this past month, you will have two readings on your bill. One reading reflects usage from the old meters up until the time the new meters were installed. The second reading is from the time the new meter was installed until the end of the billing cycle. Next month it will only reflect the reading from the new meters for the entire billing cycle.
