Village Announcements

Snow Advisory

The Village of Jerome is announcing the village is under a snow advisory, with anticipated snowfall between 3 to 5 inches.

It is not mandatory, however, residents are asked not to park along designated snow emergency routes from 7:00 p.m. this evening until 7:00 a.m. tomorrow, Thursday, February 13. This will allow snow plows better access to roadways for snow removal.

Water Billing Issue


Since the recent issuance of water bills, it has come to the Village’s attention that the water bills related to usage from December 2019 into January 2020 included more days than the Village typically includes on the bills. Specifically, the water bills included usage from December 20, 2019, through February 5, 2020, rather than from December 20, 2019, through January 20, 2020. This was in error. After identifying the issue, the Village has processed corrected water bills, which were mailed February 10, 2020. The correct amount and due date will be indicated on these corrected water bills. The Village regrets the error and apologizes for any confusion that may have resulted from the water bills issued in error. If you have any questions you can contact the Village Office at (217) 546-2203 between the hours of 10:00 am – 1:00 pm Monday through Friday.

Crime Alert

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.

Office Hours

Until further notice, the office hours for the Village Office will be changing to 10:00 am – 1:00 pm Monday through Friday.
