Contact City Office to be Placed on Budget Bill

The new budget payment plan for utility bill will be calculated soon for the upcoming fiscal year that begins in May.

If you are already on budget bill, the city will figure a new amount and send to you with your May utility bill.

If you are NOT currently on the plan and wish to have your utility bill figured on a budget plan, please contact the city office on or before April 17th at 217-438-6151 ext. 2302 and we will be happy to add you to the list of letters sent out in May.

Should anyone choose to go on the budget payment plan, they MUST start paying this amount with the May bill, which is due on or before May 31 of each year.

If you do not pay the budget amount that we figured for you BY May 31 of each year, we will NOT put you on the budget bill plan and you will owe the amount of the bill each month.

PLEASE REMEMBER THE BUDGET AMOUNT FIGURED IS JUST A BEST GUESS BASED ON USAGE FROM THE PREVIOUS BUDGET YEAR. CUSTOMERS MUST MONITOR THEIR PAYMENTS EACH MONTH TO ENSURE A PROPER CREDIT IS BUILDING UP IN TIME FOR THE COLD WINTER MONTHS.

Customers can also simply forego paying the budget amount figured for them and can simply build a credit on their account throughout the year.

Revised Adopt A Park Application Materials Available

The City of Auburn Adopt-A-Park program is a partnership between the City of Auburn and volunteers, in an effort to keep our community clean, safe, and attractive. By working together, we can continue to provide a beautiful environment in which to live and raise a family. The program also educates and encourages people to stop littering and take pride in their community.

The program is voluntary and is designed for organizations, businesses, or individuals. Each adopting group assumes responsibility for an assigned park or section of a park and agrees to participate in park improvements for (length of time). The City of Auburn will work with the adopting group to select a park and provide guidelines to complete work assigned.

Recently, the City Council revised the application materials to participate in the program.  The city is hoping to once again establish this program to further work with groups in the community and continue to revitalize city parks.

The application materials can be completed and submitted to the city office should any individual or group(s) be interested in participating.

As Thanksgiving approaches, buckle up and designate a sober driver

Auburn, IL – As Illinoisans gear up for one of the busiest travel times of the year, the Auburn Police Department announces its plans for a traffic safety campaign focusing on impaired and unbuckled drivers.

“Holiday traffic brings with it an increased risk for accidents,” said Chief Campbell. “To ensure your family makes it to and from your Thanksgiving feast without incident, make a conscious choice to buckle up and plan ahead for a sober ride home.”

According to the Illinois Department of Transportation, 15 motor vehicle crash fatalities occurred in Illinois over the 2018 Thanksgiving holiday weekend.  Five of the 15 deaths occurred in crashes involving at least one driver who had been drinking.

Auburn Police Department is partnering with the Illinois State Police and local law enforcement across Illinois for the increased statewide effort.  The high visibility crackdown will run from November 22nd through the holiday weekend into the early morning hours of December 2nd.
