Hydrant Flushing

The Village will be flushing the hydrants in town Tuesday (12/16) – Friday(12/19). You will probably experience some temporary discoloration with your water at home. Go ahead and run your water until it clears up. The water is safe to drink. This is the last step to having our new and improved water treatment plant connected. Please share with all family and friends in town that might not be connected to technology. The next water project is our new 150K gallon water tower (previously 50K) that will break ground in the spring. Thank you for all of your patience!

Boil Order Lifted

The boil order which was caused by the tornado on 11/17/2013 has been lifted for the village of Gifford.  Thank you for your patience as we worked to resolve this issue.  Please contact us if you have any further questions.

Golf Cart Ordinance Update

The Village Board has decided to not take any further action to enact an ordinance allowing the use of golf carts on village roadways.  Current state laws prohibit the use of such vehicles to be driven on any roadway unless an ordinance is passed by the local governing body allowing them.  However, state laws do permit the use of Low-Speed Vehicles (LSVs) to be driven on any roadway with a posted speed limit of 30 mph or less. Therefore, the Village will not restrict the use of LSVs as long as they are operated meeting state laws. These vehicles must be registered and licensed with the Illinois Secretary of State.
