Relocating to Thomson
Are you ready to slow down and relax a little? Do you just need a place where you can take a deep breath, look around, and kick up your feet for a while?
On Wednesday, July 26, the Village of Thomson incurred a water outage while relocating a fire hydrant. Although some property owners had been notified in advance, additional properties were unexpectedly affected as well, due to unforeseen circumstances. Immediately, the public works department began efforts to notify property owners, and Village Clerk Jennie Foltz and Trustee Char Daehler posted the information on the village website, facebook, and notified local radio and television stations. I would like to thank them, as well as Public Works Superintendent Jeff Ashby, Supervisor Jeff Balk, and Hunter LaShelle for their efforts to notify those affected and restore water service as quickly as possible.
The Village of Thomson will also post important notifications regarding Public Works and Public Safety via the Thomson Fire Protection District’s Emergency Notification System. We encourage anyone within the TFPD boundaries to sign up for this FREE service to receive alerts via text, email or phone call. Please visit the Village website at www.thomsonil.com, and sign up using the link available on the home page under Helpful Information. If you or family members do not have access to a computer, you may call the TFPD’s Point of Contact Eric Smith at 618-447-2046 for assistance.
The Illinois Department of Transportation will be reconstructing curbs, ramps and gutters along IL RT 84 from Whitney Street to Lucas Avenue. The project is expected to be completed by mid-September.
We encourage drivers and pedestrians to stay alert and observe road closure signs. Please slow down to protect the safety of the construction workers!
