    From the Office of Village President Lael Miller

    Dear fellow residents of East Dundee,

    I regret to inform you that COVID-19 has officially arrived in East Dundee with at least one confirmed case being reported. This brings the total number of cases in Kane County to 113. Now, more than ever, we need to come together as a community and continue to follow the Stay Home Order that was issued by the Governor. If we, as a community, can limit our interactions outside of our home and practice social distancing when it is necessary to leave, we can all contribute to limiting the spread of this virus. The past few weeks may already seem like a lifetime but it is our responsibility as a community to take control by doing what we can to curb the spread of the virus. I want to say thank you to all of the essential workers who have already given so much and put their lives at risk. As difficult as it may be now, I believe East Dundee is resilient enough to endure these difficult times and set a good example for other communities to follow as we all try to flatten the curve.

    Also, our local businesses need our help right now more than ever. Please stay local by ordering from East Dundee restaurants providing take out and delivery options. This is a great way to support local businesses while keeping a safe distance. Look for their menus and hours on their websites and Facebook pages.

    For up-to-date information in Illinois, visit the Illinois Department of Public Health at

    The Kane County Health Department is working on an interactive dashboard for Kane County COVID-19 tracking. Once completed, it will be found on their website:

    Stay safe, healthy and 6-feet away from others.

    Our spring hydrant flushing program has begun and is currently underway. We’re starting at the Northeast side of town and making our way West and South as we go. In the event youa rehaving temporarily low or fluctuating water pressure or discolored water, the flushing is most likely the cause.

    Flushing is primarily performed in the spring and fall, you will see Public Works personnel flushing water from hydrants. The goal of the program is to make sure the hydrants operate properly in the event of a fire and to remove sediment from the pipes in order to maintain water quality.

    Hydrants are flushed between 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. Signs are placed in neighborhoods to remind residents that the program is underway in their area.

    As described, fire hydrants are periodically opened to flush water mains in the system. Additionally, the Fire and Public Works departments routinely use hydrants to make assessments as to whether adequate pressure and flow are available to satisfy normal system demands as well as the increased demand required in the event of a fire. These actions, as well as some construction activities, may result in brief periods during which you may observe moderate discoloration in your tap water. Customers are encouraged to contact the Water Department if rusty water occurs.

    Is rusty water safe for consumption?
    Yes. Occasionally water becomes discolored after hydrant flushing. If this happens, residents are encouraged to let their faucets run for a few minutes if they notice any discoloration. If it does not clear the first time, wait a few minutes and run the water again. You should avoid washing clothes until the water is clear.

    Prevailing Wage Ordinance

    Under Section 5 of the Prevailing Wage Act, all public bodies in the State of Illinois are required to pass an ordinance or resolution establishing prevailing rates of wages and file that resolution with the Illinois Department of Labor. The Village of East Dundee passed an Ordinance (19-21) on June 3, 2019 Ascertaining the Prevailing Rate of Wages on Public Works Projects adopting the prevailing rate of wages for construction work in the Kane and Cook County areas as determined by the Department of Labor of the State of Illinois for 2019.
