Environmental Health & Property Maintenance

Among the various responsibilities of the Community Development Department is the enforcement of environmental health and property maintenance standards. The Village of La Grange has on its staff a State of Illinois-licensed environmental health professional who is responsible for both of these important programs.

Environmental Health

The environmental health officer oversees the food protection program in our village. Detailed plan reviews for new food service facilities are conducted, construction sites are inspected, and food service facilities are inspected on a routine basis. Complaints and inquiries are also addressed by the health officer.

Property Maintenance

The Village of La Grange and its residents pride themselves on having well-kept homes, businesses, and properties. Occasionally, a property may fall into disrepair. Should this happen, the Community Development Department staff will investigate any valid complaint on a property or any violation of code noted during periodic surveys of the community.
