The Village of Brookfield is dedicated to replacing defective sidewalk to minimize trip hazards for its residents. Staff systematically surveys public sidewalks to identify and replace sections that have been damaged or heaved up from tree roots or the annual freeze/thaw cycle. Every year, the Department of Public Works will survey one quarter of the Village right of way, and hire a contractor to replace the damaged sidewalk at the Village's cost. If you would like to report damaged sidewalk or to find out which section of town is scheduled for the replacement program in a given year, please contact Public Works at 708-485-2540
Brookfield snow regulations are in effect from December 1 to March 31 of each year. After a snowfall of 2 inches or more, residents can check the signs on their block to see on what day and which side of the street they should park. Parking violators are subject to a $35 ticket for each occurrence. Please use your garage or driveway whenever possible.
