Village of WestmontDate Issued: May 8, 2015
“Each year, the Village of Westmont budgets for various infrastructure improvement projects based on needs and available resources,” says Acting Public Works Director Mike Ramsey. “In recent years, the Village has been very aggressive in addressing the needs of our community. At this time, we’ve determined the projects that will be slated for 2015. As with all construction projects, it is important to understand that much of our work is weather dependent and crews may be working on several projects in various locations at the same time. We appreciate everyone’s patience during this process.”
