Daylight Saving Time- March 10


Just a reminder to set your clocks ahead one hour on March 10th at 2:00 a.m. for Spring Daylight Saving Time.


Since many of us can't make it until 2:00 a.m., set your clock ahead before you go to bed that night. Sunrise and sunset will be about 1 hour later on March 10th. Wake up to more daylight the next day!

Hanover Park Is Dedicated to a Complete Count In 2020!


The 2020 Census is quickly approaching and the Village of Hanover Park is making preparations to get the most accurate census count as possible. Having inaccurate and low count census information is very problematic and can greatly affect state and federal funding to local municipalities


Watch each week in this section of our eNews for Census facts and important information regarding the 2020 Census. Census data is used to determine how more than $675 billion in federal funds are distributed back to states and local communities every year for services and infrastructure, including health care, jobs, schools, roads & businesses. Stay informed and be sure to complete your 2020 census.

Don’t Rely on the Luck o’ the Irish this St. Patrick’s Day

Drive sober and buckle up for a safe celebration 


The Hanover Park Police Department announced it will conduct special patrols for St. Patrick’s Day during the weeks before and after the holiday to arrest impaired drivers and to encourage the use of seat belts. 

“We’re urging you to plan ahead for St. Patrick’s Day festivities,” said Deputy Chief Terrence Sherrill, “Don’t ever drive under the influence of alcohol or any drug. It’s not just about you. There are other people on the roads who are impacted by your decisions.”
 
If you’re hosting a St. Patrick’s Day party:

  • Remember, you can be held liable if someone you serve is involved in an impaired driving crash.

  • Make sure your guests designate a sober driver in advance or help arrange ride-sharing with sober drivers.

  • Serve plenty of food and non-alcoholic beverages.

  • Download a ride-sharing app on your phone to help partygoers and keep phone numbers for local cab companies handy.

  • Take keys away from anyone who is trying of drive impaired. 

If you’re going out for St. Patrick’s Day:

  • Designate a sober driver ahead of time and give that person your keys.

  • If you don’t have a designated driver, call a cab, use ride-sharing, have a sober friend or family member pick you up or stay where you are and sleep it off.

  • Never let a friend leave your sight if you think they’re about to drive impaired.

  • Buckle up – it’s your best defense in a crash. 

Pedestrians are at risk, too. If you are walking, keep an eye out for cars. Designated drivers should remain alert for impaired walkers who may not obey street signs and pedestrian signals.
 
The St. Patrick’s Day enforcement campaign is part of the Illinois “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” and “Click It or Ticket” programs supported through federal funds administered by IDOT.
