In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and for the safety of the general public and Village staff, the Village of Homer Glen is encouraging patrons to conduct Village business online or over the telephone. To limit face-to-face interactions, effective Thursday, March 19, services provided at Village Hall will only be available via email, online, fax and/or by telephone until further notice.
At this time, Village staff will be available to answer phone calls and respond to emails. The public may access Village information and staff in the following manner:
Email: Visit the staff directory at http://homerglenil.org/Directory.aspx if you need to reach someone specific. For the Building Department, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. For general inquiries, you can email email@example.com.
All police administration and non-emergency matters for the Will County Sheriff’s Department should be directed to 708-301-9274.
For emergencies, call 9-1-1.
Building Permits & Inspections
Applications for building permits can still be submitted by email, fax or regular mail. The Village’s permits are available online at www.homerglenil.org. At this time, the Village will not require payment of the permit fees at time of application. These fees will now be able to be paid at time of permit issuance. Village staff will still be conducting essential inspections. Nonessential inspections, that require entering our residents’ homes will not be conducted at this time. The determination of essential versus nonessential will be decided by the Village’s Chief Building Official. The processes for issuing building permits and requesting inspections will continue with no changes. Next week, the Village will have installed a drop box by the Village Building Department entrance that will allow residents/contractors to drop off large-format plans and permit applications. All possible efforts will be taken to not disrupt construction in the Village, while still protecting the public and Village staff.

Freedom of Information Act Requests can be completed online or faxed to 708-301-8407. Please call Village Hall at 708-301-0632 for more information.
