Poll Workers Sought for March 20 Primary Election

The Cook County Clerk’s office is looking for poll workers to serve in a suburban precinct for the March 20, 2018 Gubernatorial Primary. Poll workers help ensure their fellow citizens can cast their ballots and make their voices heard. There are two positions available: Election Judge or Equipment Manager, which both assist voters and ensure the polling place is running smoothly. Equipment Managers are also responsible for setting up and maintaining the voting equipment. Due to the additional responsibility, Equipment Managers receive more training and get higher pay. Election Judges earn $190, while Equipment Managers earn $340.

Recycle the Tree in Glenview

When it's time to dispose of the Christmas tree, think about recycling it. During the month of January, trees can be brought to six designated collection points for recycling as mulch that will nourish plantings in Glenview parks:
  • Glenview Public Works, 2498 East Lake Avenue         
  • Johns Park, 2101 Central Road
  •  Flick Park, 3600 Glenview Road
  •  Cunliff Park, 560 Echo Lane
  •  Cole Park, 1031 Kenilworth Avenue 
  •  Willow Park, 2600 Greenwood Avenue
Alternatively, residents in single-family homes, duplexes and multifamily properties that have opted into the Village's refuse and recycling program can put trees, wreaths and garlands out with the regular garbage during the month of January. Groot will collect them at no additional charge.

All ornaments, lights and tinsel should be removed from all trees. Do NOT cover the tree with a plastic disposal bag.
