Does the Community Development Department recommend contractors?

No. Because of liability, the Village cannot make recommendations of any type. You are encouraged to “shop around” and hire whatever contractor you see fit. Contractors that are not already licensed to work within the village can become so after providing the required insurance information.

The Community Development Department maintains a file of resident comments and complaints about contractors, and this file is available for public viewing during business hours: Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. (We encourage you to submit either complements or complaints to our file if you like.)
