Parking restrictions

Parking restrictions have been lifted and vehicles are again allowed to park on the street. No vehicles were towed or ticketed due to illegal parking during the storm, and Public Works was able to dig out snowed-in vehicles.


All village streets, alleyways and parking lots have been plowed. Touch-up work on alleyways is scheduled for tomorrow.

Post office

The post office reopened for normal business hours today after being closed yesterday. Mail delivery service also resumed today after a suspension yesterday.

Garbage pick-up

Garbage and recycling collections scheduled for Wednesday have been postponed to Friday, Feb. 4.

River Forest Village Administrator Eric Palm said there are currently no estimates on the total cost associated with storm preparation and response. "That is something we will be putting together, just sort of a post-mortem analysis, if you will," said Palm. He said he expects to begin that analysis early next week.

Interesting that the article notes that all streets and alleyways have been plowed. The townhome parkways directly east of the CVS store at Thatcher/North Ave. are a disgrace. All of the snow from North Ave. ends up on the parkways, and residents of the townhomes have no recourse getting in and out of their parking spots on North Ave. The village says that this is not their responsibility -village plows were out on North Ave on Weds sending snow onto the parkways. Plows can't even get in!
