Office Visits by Appointment Only
At times residents or consultants visit Public Services Building to speak to an Engineering Division staff. While we offer such service on other areas, it is challenging or impractical to meet in person for unscheduled appointments due to Engineering Division staff being out on job sites or in meetings. If a resident or consultant wish to meet with an Engineering Division staff, please call ahead to make an appointment with the appropriate staff. The Engineering Division staff contact information is noted on this webpage. If you wish to speak on a general topic, please call Public Works at 847.432.0807 for additional details and to schedule an appointment. When contacting via phone message or email, please provide information on the requested matter so that staff can promptly address the concern. Thank you.
