Valley Hi Nursing Home, McHenry County's long-term skilled nursing facility, has amassed a fund surplus of approximately $40 million, or enough to cover more than three years of operations. After months of discussion, the McHenry County Board voted on April 16, 2019, to rebate $15 million of it back to homeowners who take the homestead exemption. The Illinois Fiscal Responsibility Act provides the process by which surplus funds can be rebated. The Valley Hi Rebate program follows this law.

The Village Fire Hydrant Flushing is now complete. Thank you very much for your patience and understanding during this process!
In observance of Memorial Day, the Village Clerk's office will be closed on Monday, May 27th. Thank you and enjoy the day!
The Village of Hebron Water Department will be flushing fire hydrants starting the week of May 20 to May 24, 2019. Flushing will be scheduled during daytime hours from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
The flushing of fire hydrants has several advantages such as systematically removing stagnate water, iron and sediment deposits from the sidewalls of the pipe. This will help to improve water quality and maintain fire flows, as well as make sure all fire hydrants are operating correctly.
Hydrant flushing may cause some temporary discoloration of the water. If you experience water discoloration, which does not clear up within 24 hours, please contact the Water Department at 815-403-7594 and someone will follow up with you as soon as possible.
While the Village water meets all safe drinking water standards, the consumption of dicolored water is not recommended. The Village also recommends residents refrain from doing laundry when flushing is underway in your neighborhood, as the sediments stirred up during the process can discolor some clothes. Finally, please make sure to close all windows in your home and vehicles during flushing in your area as heavy winds can cause water to drift and do not drive through an open hydrant as this water pressure can damage your vehicle.
Please join in the fun on June 8th for Hebron Spring Into Summer Fest 2019!!!
The festivities will be held at the Hebron Community Park on Saturday, June 8 from 11:00 a.m. until 11:00 p.m. There will be Music, Food, a Beer Garden, Crafters and Vendors. For more information, please contact Trustee Jim Lange at 815-509-9465.
