    The village should start enforcing the property code violations throughout the village. Starting with the alleys between Atlantic and Princeton. The area has really deteriorated in the last five years.

      Can you put a detailed complaint in the report a concern tab and we will forward to Public Works. Thank you


    You ask that we as residents maintain our property but you as village public works counter with snow plows that come along and destroy the lawns in front of homes. Village tree care seems to be the last thing on your priority list. Abandon properties in the village seem to go totally ignored. When every I’ve called about any of these concerns I am told to be patient, my concerns will be addressed.

    I recently reported a concern to the Building Department around 9:30 A.M. on a Monday.
    By noon the Code Enforcement Officer had visited the neighbor and the issue was resolved.

    Good work – everything should be so quick and easy.

    We need branch/tree limb pickup on State just south of 142nd – several houses have done maintenance but debris is spilling into the street.

    Someone is dumping their grass clippings in garbage bags in front of my garage and also their tree limbs. I have lawn service and I don’t collect all these clippings. What can be done about this? Thanks

    I have been a property owner in Dolton for over twenty years. I own one of the buildings on the block of,15200 Chicago rd. There are two abandoned bldgs. The alley in back has deep ruts and there is debri strewn about. I have had to pay extra for trash that has been illegally dumped in the back and the little creek in bak is full of debri.Awful
