Good Afternoon all. In light of the Coronavirus outbreak, the Village of Jerome, as well as other governmental bodies, are undertaking measures to ensure public health and safety! We ask our residents to follow best practices.
Please stay at home if it all possible and practice social distancing when out in public. As the Village President of Jerome, I will exercise everything in my power under consultation with the Village Board of Trustees to keep our 1600 residents safe.
Our village is called home by individuals of all ages and backgrounds. Many of our residents are elderly and are at high risk. Please check on your neighbors’ well-being. This village is built on being strong and caring.
I simply ask for you to follow the CDC Guidelines:
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Wash your hands with soap for 20 seconds!
- Stay home if sick!
- Work from home if available!
I ask all to stay educated!
I ask all to stay calm!
I ask all not to hoard food and other consumer goods!
Most importantly, take care of one another!
To address the current health crisis, the Jerome Village Office and Water Department will be closed to walk-in customers from Tuesday, March 17th through Monday March 30th. Water payments and surveys can be put in the deposit slot to the right of the front office doorway. Please call 546-2203 regarding any questions or business with the Village.

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.
NOTICE TO VILLAGE OF JEROME WATER CUSTOMERS
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.
