Winter Storm Warning for Kirkland, Illinois – 10 January 2020

ATTENTION RESIDENTS – A couple of reminders given the potential Winter Weather that is heading our way:
 
1) The Snow Parking Ban will be in effect once 2″ of snow has fallen and will remain in effect until all snow has been cleared. Any vehicles that are in violation risk being ticketed and/or towed.
 
2) Kirkland Village Hall and the Kirkland Fire Department are making preparations to serve as Warming Centers in the event of power outages from the potential ice and wind currently forecasted. More details will be provided if we do lose power and need to open these facilities.
 
Lastly, we ask that all residents exercise caution when with this weather. Please only travel if absolutely necessary, ensure that you have candles and flashlights ready and please check on those who may need it in the event that the power goes off.  We hope everyone has a safe weekend!
