Cicero was, along with Westchester, one of the worst-hit communities during the flood of July 2010. Several feet of water in the basements, flooded roadways, and a lot of property damage were a common sight on that Saturday. Since then, we have helped many of the town residents by installing several flood control systems. That will help the homeowners stay dry in case the town gets another deluge like that in the future.
Cicero, named after a town in New York is one of the biggest and oldest municipalities in Cook County. Located just 7 miles west of the Loop, Cicero lies on the north and east sides of Chicago. Cicero has the only town form of government , that is governed by a board of trustees. Originally the town of Cicero was 36 square-miles, in the present day it's about 5.5 square miles. Cicero became the first western suburb connected to Chicago by rail when the Galena & Chicago Union railroad was built. Some of the landmarks in the town are St. Mary of Czestochowa, a neo-gothic church, J. Sterling Morton High School the East Campus (Morton East), Chodl Auditorium located inside of the high school and the Hawthorne Race Course.
Unfortunately, just like the city of Chicago, it was built with a combined sewer system. That means that during heavy rains many residents experience sewer backup in their basements. As a solution to the problem we are installing our Parks' Double Guard Systems. We also highly recommend disconnecting the downspouts away from the sewer as a preventative maintenance.
The Village of Cicero does offer 50/50 Flood Control rebates for qualifying residents. For more information click the link below.
