The Village of Glen Ellyn’s Public Works Department is committed to providing residents with efficient and thorough snow management services. Meeting this level of service is no easy task. Falling temperatures, snow, ice and freezing rain are formidable opponents.  The Village is divided into several sections to facilitate snow removal, with one or more drivers assigned to each section. When three inches or more of snow has fallen, additional personnel man snow throwers to clear a four-foot wide path on all sidewalks in the Central Business District and any sidewalks where the Village owns the adjacent property.
The Village is not responsible for snow removal on streets maintained by the DuPage County Department of Transportation and the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT).  These streets include Geneva Road, St. Charles Road, Park Boulevard south of Raintree Drive/Buena Vista Drive (DuPage County Department of Transportation), Roosevelt Road (Route 38), Route 53, and Butterfield Road (Route 56) (IDOT).  If you have questions or concerns regarding snow removal for a street maintained by DuPage County, please call 630-407-6900.  If you have questions or concerns regarding snow removal for a street maintained by IDOT, please call 847-705-4000.
Parking and Other Reminders During Snow Season

By Village ordinance:

  • No parking on Village streets if two or more inches of snow have fallen.
  • Overnight parking is not permitted on Village streets between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. year-round.
  • Pushing snow from your driveway into the street is prohibited as it creates a hazard for drivers.
Mailbox Issues During Snow Season
Keep your mailbox safe from snowplows in the winter by ensuring that they comply with Village Code height and setback requirements.  If your mailbox has been damaged, please report the damage to the Public Works Department at 630-469-6756 between the hours of 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. If your mailbox cannot be repaired, a temporary mailbox will be left at your home until a permanent installation can be made in the Spring.
