EMERGENCY SIREN SYSTEM MAINTENANCE
The Village's outdoor warning siren system vendor will be working on the Village's emergency sirens system again TODAY (June 29). This work may set off the sirens throughout the Village. So please, if you hear an unexpected emergency siren going off on either of those days, do not panic. You can check local television stations to determine whether there may be a weather emergency taking place.
Just as a reminder, the emergency sirens system is routinely tested on the first Tuesday of each month at 10 a.m.

Rabid Bat Found in Palatine
On June 16, 2015, a bat was found in the vicinity of the 100 block of West Wood Street. It was submitted for examination and determined to be rabid by the Illinois State Public Health Laboratory. Residents in the immediate area were mailed a notice of this finding.
All residents should keep their dogs and cats on a leash when out of their homes. If your animal does not have a current rabies vaccination, have the pet immediately inoculated with the rabies vaccine.
It is advised that you do not handle any bats, skunks, or other wild animals. If any bats or skunks are found down or dead on your property or roadway, please call the Cook County Department of Animal Control at 708-974-6140.
