Letter from Constellation
Residents enrolled in the Village's municipal aggregation program might have received a letter regarding Notice of Assignment of Municipal Aggregation Services Agreement (the “Agreement”) between Constellation NewEnergy, Inc. (“CNE”) and the Village of Palatine. No action needs to be taken as a response of this letter. The purpose of this letter is to inform customers of a name change due to an internal reorganization. All rates remained unchanged.

The following graph shows the Village's fixed rate through Constellation versus ComEd's August rates.
The Village has been made aware of residents receiving marketing phone calls that appear to come from a Village phone number. The calls are not coming from us, but rather from someone falsely using our name and number as their Caller ID.
Caller ID service is susceptible to fraud. Using a practice known as "Caller ID spoofing," callers can deliberately falsify the telephone number and/or name relayed as the Caller ID information to disguise the identity of the calling party. This appears to be what is occurring throughout the Village.
We apologize for any inconvenience or confusion this might be causing. We are working with our vendor to ensure the number is assigned to us and is working properly.

Village Hall Renovation
Residents seeking services at Village Hall should visit 150 W. Wilson Street (northeast corner of Wilson & Smith Streets, just south of the railroad tracks) until further notice while the current Village Hall undergoes extensive renovations. Village Hall hours will remain consistent (Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.), the phone number will remain the same (358-7500), and mail may continue to be sent to 200 E. Wood Street.
Moreover, starting in October, all Plan Commission, Zoning Board of Appeals and Village Council meetings will be held at Police Department Headquarters, 595 N. Hicks Road. A list of meeting dates, times, and agendas can be found by clicking here.
UPDATE AS OF 7/22
All reinforcing steel for the footings and foundation has been delivered. The footings for the new entrance have been poured and the foundation walls in that area are being formed. Drain tile will be installed soon followed by backfilling. The brick is beginning to go up on the north elevation where the Police Department used to be.
