The View from 101 York

LW Reedy has been serving the Elmhurst community and surrounding areas since 1951. As the largest locally-owned real estate agency in Elmhurst, we have a passion for local news and events. Here’s our view of the community for this month, from our perch at 101 York in the heart of downtown Elmhurst.

Spring Cleaning in Elmhurst

Now that the city has completed special flood pick-ups, it’s time to get ready (again) for Spring Clean-Up. Have your items at your curb the week of June 10 on your regular garbage day. Check the city website for acceptable items and other details.

Flood Recovery

More on that topic we all want to forget – it’s flood news. It’s time apply for FEMA assistance. If your home was damaged in the flood, FEMA may be able to help.

Another way to reduce the financial impact of the flood is to apply for assessment relief. In Elmhurst, check the York Assessor Office website or call Addison Township Assessor’s office at (630) 530-8161 for deadlines and details.

Getting ready for summer fun?

Elmhurst Park District is offering discounts for summer pool passes through May 24. These passes allow summer-long access to both of Elmhurst’s outdoor pools AND our spray ground at The Hub.

Speaking of the pool, do you have a teenager in need of a summer job? The Elmhurst Park District is looking for lifeguards!
