Palatine Village Hall will begin relocating on Wednesday September 24, 2014 and continuing until Friday September 26, 2014. We anticipate being open in our temporary location on Monday September 29, 2014.  Our temporary location will be 150 W. Wilson St. Palatine IL.  This will be our location for approximately one year. All other contact information will remain the same.
During this relocation period we will have limited access to permit files/information. It is most likely that we will not be able to do much in the way of building permit processing during this time period. Therefore, if you have any critical scheduling that requires you to pick up permits or drop off permit information we recommend you do so prior to September 24th or after September 29th at our new location.

Effective Immediately, Per (225 ILCS 320/37) (from Ch. 111, par. 1135) of The Illinois Plumbing License Law
