Agendas & Minutes Municipal Code Bills & Payments Resident Requests City News Stay Informed

A little late in the day for Fact Friday but better late than never, right? This week's 'Do you know?' is 'Do you know that recycling is included in your Waste Management bill and the City of Washington provides a 19 gallon bin for you to use?' Rethink tossing that milk jug or plastic bottle into your normal garbage and take advantage of a resource you are already paying. Don't have a bin? Stop by City Hall to pick one up. One isn't enough? You can purchase another bin from the City for $14 (one time fee) or rent a 96 gallon toter from Waste Management for additional $3 dollars and some change per month.

Please clarify...last I checked, recycling cost extra.

Those totes are pathetic and blow in the wind and all of the contents. Provide a heavy duty roller at no cost and you will see a real increase in recycling...but that is only common sense that everyone already knows ✌️

East Peoria--follow suit??

The highlight from last night's Washington City Council meeting was the passing of the ordinance to amend Chapter 72 entitiled 'Parking Regulations' which expands residential permit-only parking near the high school. Attached is a copy of the Press Release, what the future sticker may resemble and a map of the affected streets. Parking on these streets for longer than 2 hours while the high school is in session will require a City residential parking permit. Starting at the end of January, residents and property owners can obtain parking permits from the Washington, Illinois, Police Department at no charge. The procedure to obtain the permit will be communicated to all residents and property owners by the end of the month. The new restrictions will not be in force until the communication has been relayed. To view the entire agenda, click on the link - cityofwashington.social/CityCouncilMtg01-21-2020 ...

Welcome to Fact Friday and another addition of 'Do you know?'
Do you know that the City's website has an 'Action Center' where you can report potholes, broken street light, fallen tree/branch and a variety of other issues? Here's a link - www.ci.washington.il.us/egov/apps/action/center.egov?eGov_searchDepartment=21

To report a pothole on a City road, make sure to have the street name and crossroad. You can even post a picture from your mobile device.
To report a pothole or issue with Business Route 24, Route 24 or Route 8, you will need to call IDOT at 309-671-4487.
And yes, the pothole on the Square by LeBakery is on Route 24 and IDOT has been notified.
On the bright side, this weekend's snow will fill in the holes and some might say potholes are one of the first signs of Spring! Yay! It's never too early to Think Spring! Especially as we bundle up this weekend to possibly shovel more snow.
