Fire Hydrant Painting

May 20, 2016

Mt. Zion Pubic Works crews are painting fire hydrants throughout the Village this summer. The Village's fire hydrants are being painted as recommended by the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA). The NFPA recommends fire hydrants using public water supply systems be painted chrome yellow, and their tops and caps should indicate the available gallons per minute (GPM). Below 500 GPM should be red, 500-999 GPM should be orange, 1000-1499 GPM should be green, and 1500 GPM or more should be blue. In the event of a fire, firefighters need to be able to quickly find and identify the fire hydrant to minimize the damage from a fire. Also, if you have a Village owned fire hydrant on your property, please trim back any trees or shrubs that may be growing around it. If the Village needs to get access to a fire hydrant, they will remove any items in the way. Thank you.

Zion has specific rules regarding signs to regulate, control, and provide for private signs in accordance with an overall plan and program for the public safety, area development, and the general welfare of the village.  Signs for garage sales are allowed but must be removed on the last day of the sale.  Residents are also only allowed one For Sale by Owner sign to be located on the property for sale.  Signs are not allowed to be placed on the right-of-way or off-site (a family/friends's property) within the village.

IEPA Mandated Cross Connect Surveys

Mar 03, 2016

The Village of Mt. Zion has begun mailing cross connect surveys to approximately half of its water customers. Due to the cost of the mailing, the remaining water customers will be surveyed next fiscal year which begins May 1st. The cross connect survey is mandated by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) in order to evaluate potential risks to the Village's water supply. Residents will be surveyed every two years.  The information collected in these surveys is only viewed by Village staff and possibly IEPA staff.  It is not shared with other agencies and will have no impact regarding the assessment of your property.  If you do not return the completed survey, the Village is required by the IEPA to inspect your property in order to collect the information.  We are asking our customers to simply fill out the survey form to the best of their ability and return it in the self-addressed envelope provided.
