Applicants can apply for as many jobs as there are openings; however, a separate application is required for each position.
Completed applications must include a legal name, contact information, the title of the position being applied for, and a signature. Incomplete applications may not be considered. Anyone needing assistance in the application process should contact the Assistant City Administrator at (630) 393-9427.
Additional proposals by Governor Rauner to freeze all property taxes and take no action to reform municipal public safety pensions will greatly amplify the negative impacts that an LGDF cut would have on municipal residents and businesses.
This record of excellent fiscal stewardship by municipal governments, encouraged by accountability to local voters, is a compelling argument to drive additional value for taxpayers by maintaining, and even increasing the municipal share of LGDF revenue. Additional LGDF revenues could be used to help offset the growing costs incurred from unfunded state mandates, the most notable of which includes paying for pension benefits that were increased by the State.
Zoning Ord. 1018, Chapter 5, Section B-10 regarding storage, states that recreational vehicles cannot be stored in the actual front yard or actual corner side yard. Travel trailers must be stored on the driveway or widening; other recreational vehicles (multi-item trailers) can be stored on a non-paved surface so long as the yard is not torn up and ruts are created. Recreational vehicles must be stored a minimum of three feet (3’) from any building and five feet (5’) from any lot line. If the vehicle is less than five feet (5’) in height, it may be parked up to one foot (1’) from the property line.
The International Swimming Pool Code, Section 305 states that any in-ground pool or any above ground pool with less than 48 inches in height (as measured from the lowest ground level point to the top of the pool wall) must be enclosed with a fence or wall with no openings/breaks, except for self-closing, self-latching gates. Pools greater than 48 inches in height may use a retractable ladder instead of a fence or wall. All pools that are a minimum of 250 square feet in area or have a depth capacity of 24 inches or greater require a building permit. Pools that don’t require a building permit are still required to comply with all zoning and safety codes.

The City’s contract with Waste Management expired on April 30, 2021. In December 2020, the City issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) on residential waste and recycling service to commence on May 1, 2021. The RFP requested that each bidder submit an option to continue the sticker-based program the City currently uses as well as a cart-based service option. The City received responses from four companies: Flood Brothers, Groot, Lakeshore Recycling Systems, and Waste Management. However, none of the companies proposed a strictly pay-as-you-throw sticker program. Three of the four companies offered a sticker program with a flat monthly fee on top of the sticker pricing. Therefore, a cart-based service through Groot was selected as the most cost-effective option over the course of the five year contract.
Residents with the 65-gallon or 95-gallon cart can place additional garbage and recycling out in a separate container (garbage should be sealed in bags) not to exceed 50 pounds each, which can be collected by one person. There is no additional cost for the excess garbage and recycling.
This does not apply to the senior discounted 35-gallon cart program.
Seniors 65 and over qualify for a 35-gallon garbage cart at a reduced senior rate. The recycling cart will still be 65 gallons. To request enrollment in the senior discounted program, contact Groot at Warrenville@groot.com and provide your name, address, phone number, and proof of age. You may also contact Groot by phone at 630-892-9294.
Yard waste stickers can be purchased at City Hall and affixed to yard waste bags or resident-owned 32 gallon rigid containers for disposal between April 1 and November 30. Residents interested in a yard waste toter can subscribe to this service by contacting Groot at 630-892-9294. Subscription to the yard waste toter allows residents to also dispose of food scraps with the yard waste for composting.
Yard waste stickers can be purchased at the following locations:

The City of Warrenville has passed ordinance O2022-05, Title 3, Chapter 28, which bans the use of coal-tar products. The ordinance takes effect starting January 1, 2023.
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons – or PAHs – are aromatic (airborne) toxic chemicals that are formed whenever anything with a carbon base (such as wood, gasoline, or meat) is burned. They are known to be carcinogenic, mutagenic, and/or teratogenic (causing birth defects), and they are major contaminants of not only paved areas, but adjacent homes and local rivers.
The purpose of the ban is to protect the people and waterways of Warrenville. Coal tar is a known human carcinogen (USGS 2015) and very toxic to aquatic life. Coal tar is the single greatest source of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) contamination in the West Branch of the DuPage, which runs through Warrenville.
Asphalt-based sealants are a readily available alternative to coal tar-based sealants, and numerous studies by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) have shown that asphalt-based sealants have significantly lower concentrations of PAHs and therefore a lower risk for causing harm to humans and wildlife (USGS 2015).
The ban applies to all homeowners, business owners, property owners, HOAs, contractors, and anyone who might apply or sell coal tar pavement sealants within The City of Warrenville.
Coal tar sealant is the black, viscous liquid applied to many asphalt parking lots, driveways, and playgrounds in North America to protect and enhance the appearance of the underlying asphalt. Coal tar sealant is a potent source of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) contamination in urban and suburban areas and a potential concern for human health and aquatic life (USGS 2021).
Coal tar is a known human carcinogen (USGS 2015). PAHs from coal-tar-based sealcoat can contaminate house dust, a particular risk for small children, who spend time on the floor and put their hands and objects into their mouths. Although unseen, releases of PAHs to the atmosphere (volatilization) from freshly coal-tar-sealed pavement are tens of thousands of times higher than from unsealed pavement. This is a potential human-health concern because inhalation is an important pathway for human exposure to PAHs. Runoff from coal-tar-sealcoated pavement is also acutely toxic to aquatic life. Dust on coal-tar-sealed parking lots contains bits of abraded sealcoat particles, and PAH-contaminated dust that is not trapped by stormwater management devices can be transported to streams and lakes, where it settles.
Yes. Pavement sealant professionals need to apply for a license through the City’s website. The cost of the license is $100 and must be renewed annually. Contractors will be required upon applying for a license to submit Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs) for the products they will be using. Additionally, while performing work, contractors will need to have on hand a current license, MSDSs, and invoices of products being applied. Find our current list of licensed sealcoat professionals at: https://www.warrenville.il.us/DocumentCenter/View/21376/Pavement-Sealant-Professional-License-List
In short, ask your pavement sealing contractor what type of sealant they use. Let them know that the City has banned the use of coal tar sealants. You can view a list of licensed sealant contractors on the City’s website. If your contractor is not listed, inform them of the City’s licensing requirements.
The City does have a list of sealcoating professionals licensed to work in Warrenville:
Homeowners will be allowed to seal their own driveways without a City license; however, the sealant they use must not contain coal tar. It is our understanding that most home improvement stores like Home Depot and Menard’s no longer sell coal tar sealants, but instead provide alternatives such as asphalt-based sealants. Businesses within the City limits will be required to not sell coal tar sealants.
Anyone found guilty of violating the ordinance is subject to fees as set forth in the City code 1-4-1.

“Shall the maximum tax rate for the general corporate fund of the City of Warrenville be established at .291 percent of the equalized assessed value instead of .266 percent, the maximum rate otherwise applicable to the next taxes to be extended?”
The results of that referendum were that 1,275 Warrenville residents or 24.18% voted yes in support of an abatement program and 3,998 residents or 75.82% voted no to the program. During the West Nile Virus scare in 2001, Council re-visited this issue. At their February 19, 2002, meeting, they decided against mosquito spraying or larviciding due to the potential health risk the chemicals that are used may pose – as provided by resident feedback at the meeting. Further, the effectiveness of spraying pesticides is very limited since Warrenville is surrounded by Forest Preserves. DuPage County Forest Preserve District sprays only when there is a health threat and not for nuisance mosquitoes.
Very low. This virus causes an encephalitis infection of the brain. It infects birds and is transmitted when a mosquito feeds on the bird and then transfers it to humans. Although this virus has been found in both mosquitoes and birds in DuPage County, the possibility of human infection is extremely remote. Less than 1% of mosquitoes are infected with the virus. More information about the West Nile virus can be found on the DuPage County Health Department webpage at the link.
2. Provides maximum flexibility: Since the City's aggregation program has no early termination fee (unlike many individual contracts), residents are free to come and go with no restrictions and no charges.
3. Supports renewable “green” energy sources. Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) for 100% of electric usage by program participants supports “green” electric generation from renewable sources such as hydro, wind, solar and methane gas, etc.
In addition, unlike those customers who are still receiving their electricity supply from ComEd, you will not be automatically switched over to the new electric power supplier. You may also be subject to early termination fees or other restrictions with your current provider. It is best to check with your provider to better understand any restrictions or policies that might apply, should you decide to “opt in” to the City’s program.
ComEd urges customers to contact the utility immediately if they are experiencing a power outage. To report an outage, customers can call 800-EDISON1 (800-334-7661), or report it through their website or Facebook. Spanish-speaking customers should call 800-95-LUCES (800-955-8237).
Customers can text OUT to 26633 (COMED) to report their outage and receive restoration information. Customers also can follow us on Twitter or on Facebook to stay up to date on the latest ComEd storm restoration information. ComEd has also introduced a mobile app for iPhone and Android smart phones that gives customers the ability to report power outages and manage their accounts. ComEd Website
